SINGAPORE, Feb 27 2018 : Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said today he will reshuffle his cabinet in coming months to give more responsibility to the next generation of leaders.

Lee said last year that he would step down in the next couple of years, and the city-state has to hold a general election by early 2021. Lee has said his successor is likely to be a member of the cabinet.

“I will reshuffle the Cabinet after Parliament prorogues, to give the younger members more exposure and responsibility. This way, my successor will be supported by a stronger and more experienced team, committed to leading Singapore to a better and brighter future,” he said in a Facebook post.

Parliament will re-open in May after a prorogue, or recess. – Reuters
