KHARTOUM - Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir on Sunday decided to dissolve his government and cut federal ministries, official SUNA news agency reported.

"The move is meant to reduce public expenditure and provide efficiency for government performance ... to meet requirements of national tasks," SUNA quoted al-Bashir as saying.

The federal ministries are expected to be slashed from 31 to 21.

The move is also designed to form an effective government to respond to the aspirations of the Sudanese people, al-Bashir added.

The decision is expected to come into effect after approval by the Leadership Office of the ruling National Congress Party during a meeting on Sunday evening.

Sudan has been suffering from an economic crisis caused by the scarcity in liquidity and the decline in the exchange rate of its national currency.
