There has been a major cabinet reshuffle in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Digitalcongo.net provides the text of the ordonnance with the names of the new ministers.
The Prime Minister, Adolphe Muzito, has been reconfirmed in his position. The government remains a coalition that is dominated by President Joseph Kabila’s PPRD party and the PM’s PALU party. In addition, there are representatives of smaller parties including the MSR, PANU, UDEMO and the ARC.
The main change is that the size of the government has been reduced. There are now only 43 ministers rather than 54. Elections are scheduled for 2011.
