Najib’s New Cabinet

Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak announced a 28-member Cabinet with 25 ministries that saw eight ministers dropped and seven new faces appointed.

Najib and MuhyiddinTan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, who won the Umno deputy presidency in last month’s party elections, was appointed Deputy Prime Minister and Education Minister.

    new cabinet still old faces, we are not convinced their can perform well. new faces such as Mukhriz still not good enough. we need tremendous change e.g. give all minister post to capability members with good education background, high integrity, brave, optimistic, good decision maker. if u choose mukhriz bcoz of His father, it was wrong. mukhriz cant be alike his father ability. Tun shouldnt interfere yr governance. it seem Tun behind the PM decision.
