Jamaica’s New PM to Take Office Thursday

SAN JUAN – Jamaica Labor Party leader Andrew Holness will be sworn-in on Thursday as prime minister after his party won 32 out of the 63 seats in last week’s parliamentary elections.

The ceremony at King’s House is to begin at 4 p.m., the Office of the Prime Minister said Wednesday in a statement.

Holness will take the oath of allegiance and the oath of office as prime minister before receiving the instrument of appointment from Governor-General Patrick Allen and making an inaugural address.

This will be the second stint as prime minister for Holness, who held the post from October 2011 to January 2012.

The JLP leader will succeed Portia Simpson-Miller, leader of the now-main opposition People’s National Party, who won 31 parliamentary seats in last week’s election.
