YANGON, Nov. 2 (Xinhua) -- The Myanmar government has renamed two ministries in line with the new development of the country, local media said in their websites Friday.

The name of Ministry of Communications, Posts and Telegraphs was changed into Ministry of Communications and Information Technology, while that of Ministry of Labor into Ministry of Labor, Employment and Social Security.

A message of the president's office in this regard was sent to the parliament for approval Thursday.

Myanmar's new government carried out a series of major government cabinet reshuffle in August-September in line with its reform strategy.

In its 10-day reshuffle process from Aug. 27 to Sept. 7, the government, with the approval of the parliament, reformed its cabinet with 36 ministries which include mergery of two ministries -- the Ministry of Electric Power 1 and 2 into one, addition of four ministries to the President's Office to become six and disbandment of the Ministry of Industrial Development.

In the reshuffle, nine ministers were reassigned, two ministers and the Auditor-General were asked to resign, 15 former ministers remained in posts without change, 11 new persons were named to fill the open ministerial posts, one new auditor-general appointed, one deputy minister shifted and 19 new deputy ministers appointed.

The major reshuffle of President U Thein Sein's cabinet came more than one year after he took office on March 2011 and also after U Tin Aung Myint Oo, who resigned from the post of vice president for health reason, was replaced by U Nyan Tun.
