Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid: UAE Cabinet will be reshuffled today
The UAE Cabinet will be reshuffled today, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid announced on Thursday.
In a tweet, the Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai said the ministerial shuffle will allow for a "renewal of blood" and a catalyst for change to prepare for the next stage of the country's path, including the UAE Centennial 2071.
In February last year, Sheikh Mohammed announced the largest structural change in the UAE Government's history during a "Dialogue of the Future" on Twitter, which lasted three hours.
The unprecedented social media event was held during the World Government Summit.
At the time, Ministries were merged and positions were created, such as that for the Minister of State for Tolerance, a post held by Sheikha Lubna Al Qasimi and the Minister of State for Happiness, held by Ohoud Al Roumi.
