Prime Minister unveils his Transformation Cabinet

KUALA LUMPUR: The new cabinet of Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, which was announced today, consists of those with experience, as well as technocrats and representatives of the younger generation who are believed to be able to continue the national transformation agenda.

“I am confident that this Cabinet is capable of continuing the momentum of national transformation besides being able to boost public confidence in the government,” said the Prime Minister at a briefing for media editors shortly before announcing his list of Cabinet ministers.

“I’m convinced that the Cabinet members who were appointed have the integrity to discharge their duty and responsibilities as members of the administration and are liked by the people,” he said.

Besides being strengthened by two representatives of the younger generation, Najib also brought in the president of Transparency International Malaysia, Datuk Paul Low, which is seen as proof of his seriousness in further enhancing the integrity of the government in the efforts to fight corruption.

The selection of Maybank president Datuk Seri Abdul Wahid Omar into Najib’s Cabinet was also perceived as the Prime Minister’s serious effort in continuing the implementation of the national economic transformation agenda.

“These technocrats can contribute in terms of the expertise that they possess which is most important in contributing creative and constructive ideas for consideration by the government,” he said when announcing the cabinet list at his office in Putrajaya.
