CANBERRA, Australia — Australia's first woman prime minister on Monday announced minimum changes to her cabinet in a reshuffle that analysts say points to an election within weeks.

Buoyed by opinion polls endorsing her new leadership, Prime Minister Julia Gillard promoted no fresh ministers to her cabinet ahead of an election she is set to call before the end of the year.

Former Trade Minister Simon Crean takes over Gillard's portfolios of employment, industrial relations and social inclusion. Foreign Minister Stephen Smith adds trade to his portfolio.
