UK PM Johnson to reshuffle senior ministerial positions on Thursday

LONDON (Reuters) – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will reshuffle his cabinet of senior ministers on Thursday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman said on Tuesday.

The ministerial rejig has been expected for weeks, and is likely to see several senior figures moved out of government as Johnson reshapes his team following Britain’s exit from the European Union at the end of January.

The new cabinet will meet on Friday, the spokesman said.
