Statement: Should the council of ministers once appointed be kept the same for the entire period intervening two elections?

Arguments:

1. No. Shuffling of ministers and portfolios is a healthy democratic process.

Only argument I is strong
Only argument II is strong
Either I or II is strong
Neither I nor II is strong
Both I and II are strong
