New Cabinet - It's 3pm tomorrow
The PM will unveil his new Cabinet line up at 3pm tomorrow. At 10am, he would have an audience with the King at Istana Negara where he is expected to keep His Majesty informed of the new ministers. The announcement at Putrajaya is scheduled to be telecast live. It is understood that Najib Tun Razak spent the morning and afternoon today putting the final touches to the list. The Cabinet is certain to be leaner and smaller. Component heads of BN have been told that they needed to make "sacrifices" for the smaller Cabinet.Some of the ministries said to be abolished included those held by Umno leaders. A mixed of new and old faces are expected in the list.
