It is reported that several cabinet reshuffles are to be made in the coming days.
Accordingly, about six powerful ministerial posts will be changed, a government spokesman said.
It is also learned that some changes will be made in the portfolios of several state ministers.
He also said that the main chairs of eight weak government institutions would be replaced in the near future, adding that the government was making these amendments as a first step towards embarking on a new journey in the New Year.
Finance Minister Basil Rajapaksa is scheduled to visit the island soon and the cabinet reshuffle will take place after his arrival, the sources said.
