Government spokesman Mohammad Baqer Nobakht said May 17 that the government will in high probability make changes to its composition.
President Rouhani had also said about two weeks ago that if needed, "amendments" will be made to the cabinet.
Also, presidential advisor Hesamoddin Ashna had said in an interview that some ministers and governor generals were to be replaced.
