Singapore Prime Minister, Lee Hsien Loong, said he will reshuffle his cabinet in-order to give more responsibility to the next generation of leaders who will support his eventual successor.
“This way, my successor will be supported by a stronger and more experienced team, committed to leading Singapore to a better and brighter future,” PM Lee said in a Facebook post.
He noted that the reshuffle will be done once parliament enters a mid-term break in coming months.
Lee Hsien Loong, the eldest son of Singapore’s founding father Lee Kuan Yew, said last year that he would be ready to step down in a couple of years.
He noted that an election could be called any time before early 2021.
