SKorean Cabinet reshuffled to win back trustBy AP News Jun 13, 2014 4:23PM UTC
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korea’s president is replacing seven Cabinet members in an apparent bid to win back sagging public trust in her administration after April’s ferry disaster.
President Park Geun-hye has come under harsh criticism for the government’s handling of the sinking of the Sewol, which left 304 people dead or missing.
Presidential spokesman Min Kyung-wook said the Cabinet posts at the finance ministry and security and public administration ministry were among the personnel changes announced Friday.
Park had already nominated a new prime minister and replaced her defense minister and intelligence chief.
