The Prime Minister confirmed that he was projecting the first reshuffle in his 10 ministers cabinet to bring qualified and experienced individuals into the council of ministers.

“Reshuffling the cabinet is the most needed, but that does not mean that some members will lose their posts.” he has insisted.
