The World : S. Korea Shuffles Cabinet

August 26, 1986

South Korean President Chun Doo Hwan reshuffled his Cabinet, replacing 10 of the 22 ministers, a presidential spokesman said. Foreign Minister Lee Won Kyung was replaced by Choi Kwang Soo, chief of South Korea's permanent observer mission at the United Nations, and Chung Suk Mo was replaced as home minister by Kim Chong Hoh, member of Parliament from the governing Democratic Justice Party. Prime Minister Lho Shin Yong and Deputy Premier and Economic Planning Minister Kim Mahn Je were among those retained. The spokesman said the Cabinet change would help to create an "historical turning point" in the country's political development and improve the management of state affairs.
