A Cabinet reshuffle is coming soon.

Prime Minister Andrew Holness has indicated that he’s actively looking at the matter.

Holness said, in fact, he wanted to review the composition of Cabinet from some time ago to refresh and re-energise the body but held back.

He did not say why.

However, the prime minister explained that he wants to move ministers around to expose them to different areas of government.

"We're there in our minds already," he said.

Holness was speaking on the programme 'Ask the OPM' on Nationwide News Network this morning.

This includes four ministers without portfolio.
