Pinarayi Vijayan Cabinet Minister List 2021: Pinarayi Vijayan-led cabinet has been sworn in today at the Central Stadium in presence of a limited number of people.
While Vijayan has been sworn in as the chief minister for the second time, he has inducted 20 new faces into his cabinet.
Earlier on May 18, CPI(M) state committee appointed Pinarayi Vijayan as parliamentary party leader paving the way for making him the Chief Minister for a second consecutive term. In an unprecedented turn of events, Vijayan has decided to drop all the sitting ministers including health minister KK Shailaja.
The CPI(M) has selected MB Rajesh as Speaker of the Kerala Assembly and KK Shailaja as Party Whip. Senior leader TP Ramakrishnan has been appointed as the Parliamentary Party Secretary.
