Brooding Time Till Eid Al-Fitr: Cabinet Reshuffle in the Works [Archives:1998/02/Front Page]

January 12 1998

In spite of persistent and strong disclaimers, there are strong signs of a reshuffle that will send at least four ministers packing. According to sources close to the President, the reshuffle will take place immediately after Eid Al-Fitr (early February). They added saying, “You can say that the period between now and Eid Al-Fitr is a brooding time, during which consultations are taking place.”  The Prime Minister is unhappy with the performance of some ministers. Some are corrupt and/or just unproductive, pure and simple. Others will leave because of insubordination.
