Pictured: Dr Keith Rowley is sworn in as Prime Minister for a second term on August 19, 2020.
A new Cabinet was sworn in Wednesday following a delay caused by requests for recounts of ballots from the August 10 general election.
The swearing-in ceremony was staged at President’s House, in St Ann’s, which is a first for the venue since the early 2000s.
