President Maithripala Sirisena had recently said that this Cabinet overhaul will be made on a scientific basis.
Accordingly, Secretary to the President Austin Fernando said the process of scientifically assigning the subjects to Ministers has been completed.
Meanwhile Minister Kabir Hashim has called for a scientific approach when allocating ministries during the forthcoming Cabinet overhaul.
