10 possible Cabinet dropouts

Malaysiakini reports that 10 current Cabinet ministers may be dropped. The list are as follows:

1. Tourism Minister Azalina Othman
2. Rural and Regional Development Minister Muhammad Muhd Taib
3. Home Minister Syed Hamid Albar
4. Second Finance Minister Nor Mohamed Yakcop
5. Energy, Water and Communications Minister Shaziman Abu Mansor
6. Federal Territories Minister Zulhasnan Rafique
7. Foreign Affairs Minister Rais Yatim
8. Information Minister Ahmad Shabery Cheek
9. Higher Education Minister Khaled Nordin
10. Housing and Local Government Minister Ong Ka Chuan

The Minister of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Shahrir Samad has already tendered his resignation.

Who will be added? Well, someone other than the PM should be Minister of Finance for the reasons I mentioned in the preceding post.

De minimis,

Yes, the Finance minister....

PM favourite supporter, etc, etc, etc JJ will take over as the Dy Finance Minance Minister from Nor Yacob who lost in the last elections.

Further sometime ago Mahathir did mention that Najib will need to own a Bank....

Well his brother Nazir controls CIMB....

So that will be his close Financial confidente....

In time to come the PM can appoint his brother as a Senator & then as the FM....

You go figure out...

Cheers.
