Taipei, Dec. 29 (CNA) Premier Jiang Yi-huah said Sunday that there are currently no plans to reshuffle his Cabinet, but he suggested that around the Lunar New Year, which falls on Jan. 31, would be the right time to make changes if required. In a TV interview to be aired later in the day, Jiang said there will be opportunities to make some changes if various members of his Cabinet who have taken leave from their teaching posts decide to return to academia or if some want to quit for health reasons. In general, there are two suitable timings for a Cabinet reshuffle --one is when the Legislature goes into recess in late December and the other is in late May at the end of the other annual legislative session, he said. Jiang said he has no shortlist of ministries that he thinks need a new minister. Ministers who are on loan from universities include Interior Minister Lee Hong-yuan and Kuan Chung-ming, chief of the Council for Economic Planning and Development. (By Hsieh Chia-chen and Jay Chen)
