With the exception of those retained in office as Ministers and Deputy Ministers, all new appointments are subject to approval by Parliament whilst in order to ensure continuity of government, outgoing Ministers and Deputy Ministers are advised to remain in post where necessary until the new appointees have been confirmed by Parliament and have taken the oath of office. This is what happened in 2007 when former ministers of the erstwhile SLPP Kabbah Government had stayed in post until their successors had taken oaths of office.
