Bye Bye MinInf!

It has been announced that President Khalifa has approved the Cabinet re-shuffle submitted by recently-appointed Prime Minister Mohammed.

Key Changes:
The dissolution of the Ministry of Information and Culture. Information to become the responsibility of 'independent media authorities' (Gulf News) . Culture to be handled by a new Ministry: Culture, Youth and Social Development.

The appointment of Mariam Mohammad Khalfan Al Roumi as Minister of Social Affairs, who becomes the second woman in the Cabinet.

Abolition of the Ministry of Communications and the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries whose responsibilities will now come under the new Ministry of Environment and Water.

Sheikh Mohammed retains the Defence portfolio, and Sheikh Sultan bin Zayed al Nahyan becomes Deputy Prime Minister.

Interesting. I wonder about these 'independent media authorities' though.
