The make-up of the new States Assembly is more or less complete... So who is doing what, and who is keeping an eye on who?
We now know who is Chief Minister, and who stands in for her when she is unavailable, who are the Ministers and Assistant Ministers, who will be reviewing the work of Government in Scrutiny, and who sits on other bodies, such as the Planning Committee and States Employment Board.
With the States Assembly now on summer recess until September, States Members will be preparing for the hard work to begin with the new term.
That said, with the clock on Deputy Moore's first 100 day plan ticking away, many politicians won't be getting that much of a holiday, with a mini-budget, creation of a 'Cabinet Office', new hospital review, setting up of a co-funded payroll scheme appeals process, establishment of a public service ombudsman and a project initiated to improve islanders' engagement with the government all planned before the end of October.
So here is the full list of what political representatives will be doing in the Assembly, in addition to their constituency and other roles...
Deputy Chief Minister
Assistant Chief Ministers
Assistant Treasury Ministers
Assistant Economic Development Ministers
Assistant Education and Children Ministers
Assistant Health and Social Services Minister
Assistant Home Affairs Ministers
Assistant Environment Minister
Assistant Infrastructure Minister
Assistant Social Security Minister
The job of Scrutiny is to be a 'critical friend' to Government, reviewing how it is run and proposals for new policy and legislation, and making recommendations for improvement. They are able to gather both physical evidence from Ministers and Government officials - such as reports - and hold hearings where they can question them on their work.
The Scrutiny Liaison Committee is a panel made up of the heads of all the other panels, who work together to coordinate reviews. Sometimes the panel will agree that new, specialist panels should be set up - such as the previous States Assembly's Future Hospital Review Panel, which examined the plans for the new hospital at Overdale.
