Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Prime Minister and ruler of Dubai said the UAE will announce a cabinet reshuffle today.

In his tweet, written in Arabic, Sheikh Mohammed said the reshuffle would represent “a renewal of blood, a catalyst for change and a preparation for the next stage of our nation's path”.

In the last significant structural change, Sheikh Mohammed announced in February last year that the UAE planned to outsource most government tasks to the private sector and cut the number of ministries.

He announced the formation of a single education ministry, abolishing the ministry of higher education, and fused several other state bodies into related ministries.
