DUP leader Edwin Poots is set to announce his new ministerial team later today.
An announcement is also expected regarding the party’s Stormont Executive posts.
Lagan Valley MLA Paul Givan, a close ally of Mr Poots, has been widely tipped for the role of First Minister.
Mr Poots has previously told of his plans to break with party tradition and not appoint himself as First Minister, instead remaining in charge of the Agriculture portfolio.
More on the news as it develops.
