Deidre Carter to ask the President of the Republic

Whether, given that executive political office bearers of the State change from time to time, he would make a policy directive to end the practice of adorning government buildings with portraits of the President, Deputy President, Ministers and Deputy Ministers of the respective departments and that the Coat of Arms of the Republic is utilised instead?

Reply from the President of the Republic on 29 Mar 2028

The suggestion will certainly be given consideration. The views of various stakeholders will be sought.

Among others, this will include the Government Communications and Information System and State Protocol, who produces guidelines for the display of portraits of members of the executive in government buildings.
