No cabinet reshuffle the end of the year: Najib
SEREMBAN: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has denied rumours that there would be another Cabinet reshuffle at the year end. He said the current Cabinet was still new and formed only seven months ago when he became prime minister.
"If there are too frequent Cabinet reshuffles, it will affect the work being carried out by the ministers, hence impacting the smooth running of the government administration."
Najib said this to reporters after presenting prizes to the winners of a badminton competition in conjunction with the annual programme of wives of elected Barisan Nasional elected representatives, here, Saturday.
"I've not thought about it...a Cabinet reshuffle can be done anytime but at the moment we don't need to as the present Cabinet is still new," he said. Najib, however, indicated that there might be a slight reshuffle involving deputy ministers.
"There are some matters at the deputy ministerial level that I need to look at in detail," he said.
He did not elaborate on this but his Cabinet lost one deputy minister when Deputy Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Sulaiman Abdul Rahman Abdul Taib resigned from the post Friday.
tunku : kj is having meeting with all the ketua pemuda at janda baik.it is called seminar but actually the so called seminar is to make sure that all the ketua pemuda pressure Najib to appoint kj at least as a deputy minister. Najib too has said that there might be a slight reshuffle involving deputy ministers especially now that sulaiman taib is resigning. we hope Najib will not make the big mistake here. kj not only should not be appointed as deputy minister but should be forced to resign from his ketua pemuda post. pemuda under him has not shown any improvement that is much needed.let razali take over as ketua pemuda.
