Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim of Pakatan Harapan (PH) has finally announced his cabinet line-up after being appointed as the 10th prime minister on Nov 24.

The announcement which initially was said would take place at 5pm happened at 8.15pm.

The strength of this unity government has reached ‘around two-thirds’, Anwar said.

Rumours were rife that Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz would retain his post as finance minister however this was quashed when Anwar announced that he himself would head the Finance Ministry.

The much anticipated deputy prime minister’s posts will be filled by Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi of Barisan Nasional (BN) and Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof of Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS).
