Cubanization update from Caracastan: Maduro’s cabinet dissolved again

The emperor and his puppet

As Jerry Lee Lewis might say, there's a whole lot of shaking goin' on down in Castrogonia's colony of Caracastan.

It's the second time it happens this year: All of Venenozuela's top ministers have been forced to resign.

Back in January, when he did exactly the same thing, "President" Maduro claimed that replacing his entire cabinet would ensure a more efficient, corruption-free government.

Now, seven months later, as Venenozuela spirals downward into further mayhem, all of those new ministers have been purged.  And Maduro once again promises a more efficient, corruption-free government.

Behind the scenes, invisible to the news media, Maduro's Cuban overlords had a good laugh over this latest provincial shake-up engineered by them.

From El Universal:

Venezuelan ministers hand in their resignation to President Maduro

Venezuelan ministers on Monday handed in their resignation to President Nicolás Maduro, so he can reshuffle the cabinet of ministers, Vice-President Jorge Arreaza announced.

He explained that this decision was agreed with President Maduro, in the context of a program to make the State more efficient, especially with respect to the citizen, and to fight corruption at different government levels, AFP underscored.

For his part, President Maduro publicly acknowledged the decision via his Twitter account. "I thank all the ministers for having handed in their resignations, in a move that paves the path for me to make the necessary changes," he posted.

Earlier in January, the cabinet of ministers also handed in their resignations to President Maduro as part of a government revamping; no major changes were made though.
