SEOUL, South Korea — South Korean President Lee Myung-bak named a former provincial governor as his new prime minister on Sunday as part of a Cabinet reshuffle.

Presidential secretary for public relations Hong Sang-pyo announced that the shake-up also included the ministers of knowledge economy, education and five other departments. It did not affect the ministers of foreign affairs, defense and unification.

Kim Tae-ho, a former governor of South Gyeongnsang province, was nominated to replace Chung Un-chan as prime minister, Hong said. The appointment is subject to parliamentary approval.
