20 Best Twitter reactions to Muhyiddin’s new Cabinet of Malaysia

First came the gathering of “the political parties of Bersatu, Umno, PAS, Gabungan Parti Sarawak, Parti Warisan Sabah, and the PKR faction aligned with Datuk Seri Azmin Ali gathered for meetings that each tried to play down as “normal” despite their patently atypical nature,” as reported by The Malay Mail.

Then came PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim calling it a “betrayal”. Next, then Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad resigned. And before anyone knew it—the Yang di-Pertuan Agong appointed YB Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin as the 8th Prime Minister of Malaysia.

And finally, current Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin revealed his Cabinet members (full list here) yesterday evening. The biggest revelation is of course, the replacement of a Deputy Prime Minister with four senior ministers instead. In this case: Datuk Seri Azmin Ali (International Trade and Industry), Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob (Defence), Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof (Works), and Dr Mohd Razdi Md Jidin (Education). The new Cabinet of Malaysia will be sworn in today at 3pm.
