IAN Murray has been appointed to the Senate to fill the vacancy arising from the resignation of Ronald Robinson.

Murray is expected to be sworn in when the Senate meets tomorrow, said a release from Jamaica House today.

He previously served in the Senate between 2007 and 2008, and is a former member of G2K and Deputy General Secretary of the Jamaica Labour Party.

Sworn in after the JLP's 2007 general election victory, he was asked to resign in May 2008 to make place for Colonel Trevor MacMillan, who replaced then National Security Minister Derrick Smith who was ailing.

Robinson resigned last month citing family reasons and what he admitted was "inappropriate" behaviour in the Manatt, Phelps & Phillips affair.
