Singapore PM unveils new cabinet

  • Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong unveiled Singapore's new cabinet on Monday, a media report said. Lee shuffled his team two weeks after the People's Action Party took almost 70 percent of the votes in a general election in which the prime minister campaigned upon the need for strong candidates in parliament to ensure leadership renewal. In total, there will be 20 cabinet members, up from 19. Of the 20, half were elected in the last three general elections and half are below 55 years old, Lee noted. The key change to the structure of the cabinet is the introduction of three coordinating ministers -- national security, economic and social policies, infrastructure -- each of whom will oversee a handful of related ministries.
