Ministers took their oath in the presence of the high president and state governor.

Caretaker governor John Kong Nyuon urged the new cabinet to work for peace and reconciliation among the state’s tribes.

The new line-up was opposed by some elements of the so-called “Bor youth” who questioned the government for relieving the state minister of finance, a move seen as failing to yield any significant results.

The state caretaker governor issued a decree appointing the new cabinet, although some sitting ministers retained their current positions, including minister for gender, child and social welfare Rachael Anok and minister for cabinet affairs Gai Riam
