- Prime minister’s reappointment will prolong tensions between government and parliament risking delays to 2021-22 budget bill
- New cabinet will be formed in coming days, though absence of pro-reform ministers ensures opposition remains unwilling to raise debt ceiling
- Further cabinet resignations are plausible ahead of 1 April deadline to approve budget, if deadlock in parliament prevents its passage
