The Governor General and the Cabinet Secretary have now been advised of the appointees to the Cabinet of the Andrew Holness-led Government, but the Jamaica Information Service (JIS) says the full list will not be released until Monday when the ministers are to be sworn in at King's House.

The swearing-in ceremony has been scheduled for 2 p.m.

A list has been circulating since Sunday afternoon, purporting to have been leaked by insiders. 

Meanwhile, the JIS says Prime Minister Andrew Holness on Sunday afternoon met with the Members of Parliament-elect and prospective senators who will form the next Cabinet.

Jamaica Labour Party General Secretary Dr Horace Chang has suggested that the administration will be seeking to reduce the number of government ministries.

He also said the Cabinet will comprise a mixture of young and experienced MPs.
