PM To Announce New Cabinet Line-Up Tomorrow
KUALA LUMPUR, April 8 (Bernama) -- Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak will announce the new Cabinet line-up at 3pm tomorrow, said a statement from the Prime Minister's Office today.
It said Najib will have an audience with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin, at 11am tomorrow to seek His Majesty's consent on the line-up.
The statement also said that the ministers and deputy ministers will take their oaths of office, loyalty and secrecy at 9.30am on Friday at the Istana Negara.
The announcement of the new Cabinet line-up, coming in the wake of Najib's appointment as the new prime minister on April 3, will be broadcast live by local television stations.
Mukhriz In, KJ Out? Stop those calls and don't ask me again, please. Because the PM did not - I repeat, DID NOT - consult bloggers like me on who would be in his Cabinet or out.
I hope he gets it right, though.
p.s. Sometimes they come back. I do know that a certain former MP who once was the Bernama group editor might be back from the dead zone to head Najib's communications department. Maybe I heard wrong, but I was told that this dude will be taking in a former member of Pak Lah's notorious 4th Floor along with him. Not an alluring thought, at least not for me.
