The five officers of the Enigma Thinkers Club (ETC) are, in decreasing order of rank, President, Vice-president, Treasurer, Secretary and Entertainments Officer. The five previous holders of these offices recently all changed roles, each taking over one of the five positions which he had not previously held.
The Vice-president’s predecessor and the person who formerly held the Vice-president’s predecessor’s new job both agree that the new Entertainments Officer suffered the worst drop in rank.
The man who filled the post vacated by the person who took over the new President’s old job says that he is now senior to someone to whom he was previously junior.
The Secretary says that in neither administration has he been junior to the former Secretary.
The reshuffle has rewarded the honest: all those who were promoted aways tell the truth, and all those who were demoted always lie.
What, in order, were the previous positions held by the current President, Vice-president, Treasurer, Secretary and Entertainments Officer?
