No cabinet reshuffle – Mahathir

PUTRAJAYA: Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has confirmed that there would be no cabinet reshuffle.

He has stated that he does not see any reason to why there is a need to restructure the Cabinet.

When asked to evaluate the present Cabinet, he gave it a “five out of 10”.

“I am very conservative. I have been in the government for 22 years and I know how government functions, but these people (ministers) are new, they do not know how a government functions.

“But they are learning very fast. Sometimes they come to me because I have the experience. I have to teach and guide them so that they can perform,” said Dr Mahathir. There has been speculation of a pending Cabinet reshuffle because of a growing perception that some ministers have not performed to expectation.
