Barely into his third term, British Prime Minister Tony Blair plans a government shake-up with a round of junior-level appointments.
Blair's Labor Party won last week's election, but its majority shrank dramatically.
Critics blame Blair for the reduction and are calling for him to step down in favor of his Treasury chief, Gordon Brown.
The changes to junior and middle-ranking government posts are being unveiled today. The shakeup will be scrutinized for signals on whether Blair is promoting his own allies, or bowing to the influence of Brown.
