Dr Horace Chang, general secretary of the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP), says that Prime Minister Andrew Holness is expected to name his Cabinet this weekend, following which the wheels of government will begin to turn.

"I know he is going to give us a very capable Cabinet. He ran an extraordinary campaign and did what many thought would not be practical: revived the spirit. And he is committed to a government of performance, transparency, and sound principles."

Chang said that the prime minister would appoint a Cabinet that was able to carry out his mandate, emphasising that those who would be appointed ministers would be given targets and goals to achieve.

"Size is not the issue at this point in time, and it's his choice and discretion," Chang told The Gleaner.
