British Columbia Premier-designate John Horgan and his cabinet will be sworn in July 18, the provincial New Democrats have announced.

The ceremony will be held at 2 p.m. at Government House.

Horgan has not yet named his cabinet.

“We are excited to deliver on our commitments. That’s why we are working as quickly as possible to give British Columbians the new leadership they voted for,” Victoria-Beacon Hill MLA Carole James, who is transition spokeswoman, said in a statement.

“We’re going to make life more affordable, deliver the services people count on, and create good paying jobs around the province in a sustainable economy that works for everyone.”
