HALIFAX -- Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil will unveil his new-look cabinet Thursday.

The Liberal government announced that members will be sworn in at Pier 21 on the Halifax waterfront.

The government says the ceremony will be invitation-only "because of fire regulations," but it will be webcast at novascotia.ca.

There will likely be a few new faces at the cabinet table.

Former justice minister Diana Whalen didn't seek re-election, and former energy minister Michel Samson and former community services minister Joanne Bernard were defeated in the May 30 election.

The cabinet will be sworn in by Lt.-Gov. J. J. Grant.
