(MENAFN - Arab Times) The government will not hesitate to reshuffle some of its ministers if it feels their presence in the current cabinet hinders the implementation of projects approved by the National Assembly, reports Al-Seyassah daily quoting government sources.

The move coincides with the parliamentary expectations that the coming reshuffle will include six ministers-First Deputy Premier, the Minister Interior Sheikh Ahmad Al-Humoud, Deputy Premier, the Minister of Defense Sheikh Ahmad Al-Khalid.

Sources said the expected reshuffle may include Oil Minister Hani Hussein, indicating the pointer of the reshuffle became obvious after interpellation requests submitted against the Oil Minister, Minister of Communications and Minister Finance.

They consider rationale behind this campaign of inquests is to compel HH the Prime Minister to approve reshuffling soon, which will include the Minister of Planning and Development Dr Rola Dashti.

Meanwhile, MP Adnan Al-Muttawa has called for the ouster of ministers who have been referred to parliamentary investigation committees for committing violations in their respective offices, reports Al-Watan daily.

In a press statement recently, Al-Muttawa argued the incumbent government includes ministers working for the opposition only, asserting they should not prioritize the interests of a certain group over that of the public.

He claimed the executive authority's performance does not match that of the legislature, which is strong and has the ability to use its constitutional tools once the government shows indifference or neglects its duties.

On the plan of some lawmakers to submit grilling requests against erring ministers, Al-Muttawa believes it is still possible to strengthen coordination between the legislative and executive authorities, provided the latter rectifies its errors.

He said some lawmakers do not belong to any political bloc nor espouse a certain ideology, so they work in accordance with their own principles.
