  BUCHAREST, Sept. 3 (Xinhua) -- Romanian President Traian Basescu Friday signed decrees to appoint six new ministers who will take up the portfolios of Finance, Economy, Transport, Agriculture, Labour and Communications in the cabinet reshuffle.

  Prime Minister Emil Boc announced late Thursday evening a reshuffle which involved six important ministers, more than one third of the 17-member cabinet.

  According to the presidential decrees, Economy Minister Adriean Videanu, Transport Minister Radu Berceanu, Labour Minister Mihai Seitan and Communications Minister Gabriel Sandu resigned from the government, while Ministers of Finance and of Agriculture, Sebastian Vladescu and Mihail Dumitru respectively, were removed from post.

  According to the prime minister, all the six candidates appointed to fill the cabinet vacancies are MPs, and they have been selected for their professional expertise.

  "All candidates have leading positions in specialized structures of parliamentary committees," Boc said late Thursday evening when announcing the reshuffle after a meeting of the Leading College of the ruling Democratic Liberal Party that discussed the cabinet reshuffle.

  The new ministers will be sworn in Friday noon at the Presidential Palace, after a meeting with the prime minister.
