A little known fact is that in the cabinet, there’s more independent, non-partisan ministers than ministers of any party. In the horizontal minister level, a vast majority, like six or seven of us, is non-partisan. Some of us, like John Deng in charge of trade negotiation, was actually a minister of Economic Affairs in the previous presidency. We’re not as stable as career public service, [laughs] but somewhat stable level.
