It's expected the Government will appoint junior ministers following a Cabinet meeting today.
There are 17 roles to fill, with an extra focus on the appointments following criticism of the geographical spread of the Cabinet ministers.
As with the Cabinet itself, there are far more TDs hopeful of a call-up to a junior ministry than there are seats available.
Tánaiste Leo Varadkar has said the three parties have been working to pick them based on ability, gender and geography.
Minister Varadkar arguably has the hardest job, with both demoted senior ministers and Fine Gael up-and-comers to keep happy.
It is thought Josepha Madigan and Joe McHugh will be among the appointees.
Outgoing Ministers of State Patrick O'Donovan, John Paul Phelan, Damien English, Paul Kehoe and Brendan Griffin are all hopeful of being retained.
Party Chairman Martin Heydon and TD Peter Burke are hoping for promotions, with Jennifer Carroll MacNeill the sole first time TD being talked about for a junior minister.
Geography will play a part for Fianna Fáil - with Anne Rabbitte, Mary Butler, James Browne, Charlie McConalogue and Niall Collins hoping that boosts their chances.
There are likely roles for Thomas Byrne, Jack Chambers and possibly Jim O'Callaghan after they were overlooked for Cabinet.
Niamh Smyth, Robert Troy and Michael Moynihan are also in the conversation.
For the Greens, there are likely to be appointees from outside Dublin - with Marc Ó Cathasaigh, Brian Leddin and Malcolm Noonan talked about alongside Dun Laoghaire's Ossian Smyth.
It's also possible Eamon Ryan will give one of the roles to Neasa Hourigan as an olive branch, after she campaigned against the programme for government.
With seven seats each for Fine Gael and Fianna Fail and three for the Greens, there will be fresh disappointments today.
