A cabinet reshuffle targeted at future elections is to take place next month, said reliable government sources.
It is due to come after granting relief to the people once the next instalment of the IMF bailout loan is received.
Accordingly, several SLPP MPs are expected to receive portfolios.
The party has submitted a list of its ministerial hopefuls to the president some time ago.
Another intention of this cabinet change is to bring allied institutions under the same ministry.
