The 1st reconfiguration was done on her ascension to Prime-Ministerial office, in that, in May 2010, Gov't Departments were shifted and new Ministries created (significantly, Ministry of The People). Some time after, the Unemployment Relief Programme was removed from the Ministry of Finance and placed under the Minstry of Labour, Small and Micro Enterprise Development...it has since been brought under the Office of The Prime Minister, but operationalized under three other Ministers.
Then, Ministries of Transport and of Gender, Youth and Child Development were crafted.
None of those arrangements qualify as "a resuffle", as a reshuffle means: the shifting of Ministers from Ministry to Ministry -even out of Cabinet altogether, as Ralph Maraj well knows- while the affected Ministries themselves otherwise remain as they were.
2. In publicly "telegraphing" her intention, the Honourable Prime Minister has introduced a never-before-seen, not never-see-come-see, style of governance: she has literally opened the lines for the entire population to proffer advice of what the end result must be...after all, it's a People's Partnership Gov't in place, not Patrick's Notional Movement!
In other words, the way has been opened for a referendum of sorts on the efficiency of way Ministries are currently organized.
Thus far, few outside of the People's Partnership itself seemed to have grasped that; thus, like Ralph Maraj, many spend valuable time in nitpicking and fabricating, hoping thereby, somehow the duly-elected government would be unduly brought to its knees.
But, the innards of Whitehall and "God face" none of them would ever see, for the ground has shifted..permanently...they can tune in to Sugar Aloes for melodious corroboration, if they doubt me!
There are many other reasons why Ralph Maraj is debunkable. Others, I expect, shall tend to them, for the saltmine beckons and, like the tide, the saltmine is not to be held in abeyance.
