Cabinet members fully back PM

Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has the support of his Cabinet members who said they will not pressure him to step down over the 1MDB controversy.

“The Cabinet members are all behind Najib in facing the issue,” said Agriculture and Agro-based Industries Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

The Prime Minister had explained to the Cabinet his move to demand an explanation from The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) over its July 3 article implying that 1Malaysia Develop­ment Bhd (1MDB) funds were transferred into his personal accounts.

All ministers were at the Cabinet meeting except for Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai and Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong.

Liow, the Transport Minister is overseas on official duty while Dr Wee, a Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, is recovering from an operation last month.

Ismail said several ministers gave Najib their feedback.
