Japanese government reshuffled to boost PM's popularity

&to=http://english.pravda.ru/diplomatic/2003/01/09/41765.html' target=_blank>Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro reshuffled his cabinet Monday to try to boost his popularity and give impetus to reform - particularly postal privatisation - but the mix of familiar faces with relative unknowns raised some doubts about whether he would achieve those goals.

Heizo Takenaka, a key architect of many of Koizumi's economic reforms, retained his portfolio in charge of macro-economics and, as expected, assumed a new post in charge of reform of the postal system - a centerpiece of Koizumi's agenda.
