2015 Malaysian New Cabinet Reshuffle


KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has announced a Cabinet reshuffle that sees Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi appointed Deputy Prime Minister, as well as seven new ministers and nine new deputy ministers. 

Speaking at a press conference in Putrajaya, which was telecast live on TV, Najib said the new line-up will strengthen the Cabinet to face challenges in managing the country before the 14th general election. 

He said the decision to replace Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin with Zahid, as well as appointment of new ministers and changes in portfolio were taken after taking into account political considerations and administrative needs. 

Najib said the Cabinet must act as a united team in whatever situation, and stay focused on the national agenda in the face of various issues that arise. 

“I can accept differences in opinion and criticisms as part of the decision-making process, but these differences in opinion should not be in an open forum that can affect the government negatively,” he said. 

Najib said the decision to replace Muhyiddin is very difficult but necessary for the Cabinet to move as a united team. 

He also expressed gratitude to Muhyiddin and the ministers and deputy ministers who are no longer in the Cabinet, for their contribution to the country.
