May shuffles UK Cabinet
    2018-January-10  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

BRITISH Prime Minister Theresa May started the new political year Monday with a Cabinet shake-up, hoping to re-energize her government as negotiations on Britain’s divorce from the European Union enter a crucial new phase.

While senior ministers including Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Brexit Secretary David Davis are expected to keep their jobs, May is looking to make her Conservative government more representative of Britain. She is expected to appoint more women, people from ethnic minorities and recently elected lawmakers to ministerial posts.

Her shuffle was complicated by the resignation of the U.K.’s minister for Northern Ireland amid a long-running political crisis in Belfast. James Brokenshire said he was quitting because he is about to have surgery for a lesion on his lung and will need time to recover.

Britain and the EU are set to begin discussing future trade relations, with just over a year to go until the U.K. leaves the bloc on March 29, 2019.

May removed Patrick McLoughlin, who as Conservative Party chairman oversaw last year’s disastrous election campaign.   (SD-Agencies)
