He added, "I am for a cabinet reshuffle with a majority of ministers capable of meeting the expectations and aspirations of our citizens. That is why it would be required for the president to bring new skills from diverse backgrounds, ready to meet the numerous challenges."

He cited the Scorpion's boycotting a meeting with the president as an example while urging the government to do more on the matter.

He spoke of the president appointing the right minister for the right ministries. However, when asked if he could mention a ministry that is led by a wrong minister, the businessman declined to comment, saying the presser wasn't meant for criticism.
