The new ministers in Prime Minister Hani Mulki’s government are expected to be sworn in on Sunday afternoon in front of His Majesty King Abdullah, according to informed sources.

The new ministers will include Hala Latoof as Minister of Social Development, Jameel Mujahed as Minister of Transportation and Saleh Kharabsheh as Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources, according to sources who spoke with Roya.

The appointments come after a Cabinet reshuffle last week. 

A Royal Decree was issued on Wednesday last week to accept the resignations of the then-Minister of Social Development Wajih Azaizeh, the then-Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Ibrahim Saif and the then-Minister of Transportation Hussein Al Souob.

A previous Royal Decree was issued to assign several ministers to temporarily administer the vacated ministries.

They were: Waled Al Masry, the Minister of Municipal Affairs, to administer the Ministry of Social Development; Sami Helsa, the Minister of Public Works and Housing, to administer the Ministry of Transportation; and Omar Malhas, Minister of Finance, to administer the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources.

With the appointment of the new ministers, the other ministers will return to their original portfolios.
