British PM Theresa May reshuffles cabinet before Brexit talks


British Prime Minister Theresa May has reshuffled most of her cabinet. She confirmed the majority of the ministers from her previous line-up.

Her close ally Damian Green will now oversee the day-to-day running of the government.

Mrs. May’s former rival Michael Gove has been appointed agriculture minister. It marks a comeback for a man who tried and failed to lead the Conservative party after last year’s Brexit referendum.

The prime minister formed her cabinet despite gambling away her party’s parliamentary majority in last week’s general election.

“At this important time for our country, they need stability and certainty provided by the government and that’s what I’ve been doing today, putting together a cabinet that reflects the wealth and talent and experience across Conservative Party,” she said.

“A cabinet that will get on with the job of government, that’s about delivering a successful Brexit negotiations and those negotiations start in a week’s time.”

Now May needs to unite her party to support her in those Brexit talks.
