The induction ceremony for Prime Minister Andrew Holness is currently under way at the University of The West Indies, Mona.

The induction is to take place at the Prime Ministers Park which was established in 2005, to celebrate graduates who are, or have been, CARICOM heads and prime ministers. 

However, ahead of the induction of Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago Keith Rowley, earlier this year, The Gleaner brought it to public attention that Holness, who is a graduate of the institution, was not recognised.

UWI has since apologised, indicating that it was an oversight.

Among those attending today's ceremony are former prime ministers Edward Seaga and Bruce Golding, Opposition Leader Dr Peter Phillps, Government ministers, members of the diplomatic corps and individuals from the public and private sector.
