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.

The new Cabinet sees the return of several familiar faces but some changes have been made to the line-up of ministries.

Faris Al-Rawi returns as attorney general, Colm Imbert returns as minister of finance and Terrence Deyalsingh returns as minister of health along with several others.

The Ministry of Public Administration has now added Digital Transformation to its title, as promised by Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley while campaigning.
