With the exit of reigning champions Volkswagen , a driver reshuffle and new rules and regulations, WRC might have had the shake-up it needed. Crews are already exploring the stages in Monte Carlo - and as we type, 2016 champbastien Ogier has already proven quickest on the shakedown stage in his Fiesta - where they'll contend with some of the trickiest stage conditions of the entire championship. Below you'll find an overview of what to expect in 2017, from the new cars to their comptitive crews and details of the 13 rounds that make up the season. Image 5 of 7 Image 5 of 7 WRC 2017: The cars It's new cars all around in WRC 2017.

Their close allies monopolized key positions of the ruling party. But now it is uneasy to find high ranking officials of these factions in the office of the ruling party. It's because most of them have been relegated to less important posts as a result of a recent reshuffle. Chinese vice chair Li Yuanchao, who is widely considered to be a protégé of Hu Jintao, is even embroiled in rumors of losing his post. [Chinese President Xi Jinping and his allies.

It can be clearly seen from the recent reshuffle. What's most eye-catching is the position of mayor Shanghai. Ying Yong, a former close subordinate of Xi Jinping, is expected to step up from deputy role to replace Yang Xiong, who is considered a member of the Shanghai faction.

The EPP said it was their turn after Schulz but Pittella had said he will not accept an EPP "monopoly" of the EU's top jobsheld by EPP members Jean-Claude Juncker, the European Commission president, and Tusk. Tajani's win could therefore yet prompt calls for a reshuffle of the top jobs, adding unwelcome instability to an already crisis-hit union. The new coalition agreement calls for a European defence force at a time when US President-elect Donald Trump has cast doubt on the future of the Nato alliance. It also calls for the European Parliament to have "full involvement" in the negotiations over Britain's exit from the EU after a June referendum. The grand coalition had been seen as limiting the influence of Eurosceptic groups led by Britain's Ukip and France's National Front after they made stunning gains in the last European parliament elections in May 2014.

WITH Datuk Abang Johari Abang Openg assuming the chief minister's post, all eyes are now on who is going to fill the deputy chief minister's (DCM) post he left vacant. Despite the strong desire of the Sarawak United People's Party (SUPP) and the Chinese community to see party chief Datuk Dr Sim Kui Hien being appointed a DCM, voices are coming from within Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) that the post should be reserved for the party. It is learnt that Abang Johari will announce a minor reshuffle of the state Cabinet on Thursday and talk is that the vacant DCM's post is as good as in the bag for state Resource Planning and Environment Minister II Datuk Awang Tengah Ali Hassan, who was earlier tipped to be a top contender for the CM's post. If Awang Tengah is indeed promoted to DCM, the hope by SUPP and the Chinese community for a Chinese DCM will again be dashed, Sin Chew Daily reported today.
