Prime Minister Boris Johnson is planning a reshuffle in the British government, the British newspaper Financial Times reported on November 27.
Citing sources on 10 Downing Street, the newspaper writes that Johnson will likely appoint ex-Treasury Minister Sajid David to the post of Foreign Minister by early 2021 and will implement a number of other changes in the British government.
Currently, the Foreign Ministry is under the leadership of Dominic Raab, who would later become Minister for Special Assignments, removing from this post the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster Michael Gove. In turn, Gove can take the chair of the Minister of Health, replacing Matt Hancock in this chair.
It is expected that politicians who have worked with Johnson for a long time may receive promotions. By his own reshuffles, the Prime Minister sends signals to those party members in parliament who vote against the initiatives of the current cabinet.
