Meet Malaysia’s New Cabinet of Ministers

Akmal Hakim

Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin recently unveiled Malaysia’s newest lineup of Cabinet of Ministers.

The new Cabinet will feature a completely revolutionary structure to the country’s executive government with the appointment of 4 “senior ministers” instead of a deputy prime minister as part of Muhyiddin’s “functional cabinet” system.

The ministers and their respective deputies will be sworn into office by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong (YDPA) Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah at the Istana Melawati in Putrajaya on Tuesday, March 10, 2020.
