Sudan’s new Cabinet appointed two days ago was sworn in Wednesday before Omer Al-Bashir, the nation’s president.
Addressing the swearing-in ceremony at the Sudanese palace, Bashir directed the 13 new ministers and 10 state governors to undertake their responsibilities with determination, especially amid Sudan’s current economic woes.
“As the new Cabinet takes its oath today, I ordered all the ministers to take this responsibility seriously,” Bashir said.
“This Cabinet reshuffle is important to improve the performance of the government," he added.
On Monday, Bashir ordered a major shakeup of the Cabinet, replacing 13 ministers including eight ministers and five ministers of states, and 10 governors.
Recent decrees in Sudan have cut national expenditures 25 percent in order to overcome the current fuel shortage and economic crisis since the beginning of the year.
