KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Chief Executive Office (CEO) has hinted at more changes in the cabinet and said the completion of executive body was top priority of the government.

Addressing reporters here, Javed Faisal, spokesman for CEO, said ministers for public works, communication, and economy had already been picked and would be soon introduced to the Wolesi Jirgainfo-icon for trust vote.

He said completion of the cabinet was government top priority and hinted at more changes as discussion between the top government leaders was underway but not yet finalized.

He said reforms in the security sector of the country had been kicked off and the process was going on smoothly.

Last year the Wolesi Jirga disqualified some minister over spending less than 70 percent of the development budget.

Foreign, social affairs, public works, educationinfo-icon, transportation and communication ministers were among the disqualified officials.

Government has recently introduced some new faces who would require a trust vote from the lower house to start functioning.
