South Korea’s president is replacing seven Cabinet members in an apparent bid to win back sagging public trust in her administration after April’s ferry disaster.

President Park Geun-hye has come under harsh criticism for the government’s handling of the sinking of the Sewol, which left 304 people dead or missing.

Presidential spokesman Min Kyung-wook said the Cabinet posts at the finance ministry and security and public administration ministry were among the personnel changes announced Friday.

Park had already nominated a new prime minister and replaced her defense minister and intelligence chief.
