Myanmar announces further cabinet reshuffle…Shouldn’t ASEAN Chairman follow that?

YANGON, Aug. 28 (Xinhua) — Myanmar new government Tuesday announced further cabinet reshuffle, allowing two ministers and auditor-general to resign and move one deputy minister to other post, according to an order of the President’s Office.

The two ministers, who were permitted to resign, are Minister of Construction U Khin Maung Myint and Minister of Electric Power- 1 U Zaw Min, while the auditor-general, who also resigned, is U Lun Maung.

U Soe Win, who was Deputy Minister of Information, was shifted to Ministry of Religious Affairs as deputy minister.

Tuesday’s announcement represents the second series of the government’s major cabinet reshuffle taking place a day after the first on Monday.

Myanmar new government’s major cabinet reshuffle, carried out since Monday, is said to have been made in line with its reform policy, more than a year after its installation on March 30, 2011.

In Monday’s move, nine ministers were reassigned mainly with four transferred to the President’s Office, and one, that is the Minister of Information, was replaced.

15 deputy ministers were also newly named to 13 ministries.

The series of major cabinet reshuffle happened 12 days after U Tin Aung Myint Oo, who resigned from the post of vice president for health reason, was replaced by U Nyan Tun, who was former Naval Chief, through approval of the parliament.
