Government
Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness (front row, second left) is surrounded by Ministers of State and some Cabinet Ministers, following the swearing-in ceremony for Ministers of State at King’s House on September 14, 2020.

The House of Representatives may consist of 63 members.

The Government in power can only exist if it has the support of the majority of the members of the House of Representatives.

The remaining members of the House make up the Opposition.

In practice, most Bills are initiated in the House of Representatives. The House of Representatives has control over the Government’s finances, meaning funds cannot be granted nor taxation levied without the approval of the House.

Also, Parliament must be dissolved and a general election held, if a majority of all the members of the House of Representatives supports a no-confidence motion against the Government.
