The new Saskatchewan cabinet is getting mixed reviews.

Saskatchewan Party candidate in the upcoming Swift Current byelection Everett Hindley said that he's excited about the new cabinet.

"I think it's a pretty exciting cabinet that he's appointed," he said. "There are some new faces in there, there are some faces in some different roles and we'll see in the weeks and months ahead, but I think it bodes well for the province."

The NDP opposition didn't share the same excitement as Hindley as they said that Premier Scott Moe's inner circle would mean more of the same.

"Meet the new bosses. Same as the old bosses," said NDP interim leader Nicole Sarauer. "At a time when Saskatchewan’s unemployment rate is the highest it’s been in two decades Saskatchewan people can't afford more of the same. This was a real chance for the new Premier to show he was listening to Saskatchewan people but, instead, he showed that he stands by the heartless cuts and unfair tax hikes."

Shawn Setyo, the leader of the Green Party, hopes the new cabinet works towards building a more sustainable province.

The PC Party says that they believe the new cabinet offers very little of the promised renewal.

"Today we see some old faces in this new cabinet," PC Party leader Rick Swenson said. "The cabinet cards may have been shuffled, but unfortunately, we are being dealt the same losing hand, from this tired government."
