(Another) Cabinet reshuffle in the cards? November 19, 2006

The question is:- Why?

Another cabinet reshuffle is said to be in the cards, now that Abdullah Badawi has had his “coming out” party this week.

Whether it will be yet a more expanded cabinet, now possibly the largest in the world, or is Abdullah confident enough to start trimming those said to be close to the former PM remains to be seen.

Meanwhile, the anger from non-Umno parties and Chinese associations is highlighted in the Saturday evening edition of Nanyang San Pau. For once, Lim Keng Yaik (Gerakan), Ong Ka Ting (MCA), Tian Chua (KeADILan), Lim Kit Siang and Lim Guan Eng (DAP) share the frontpage. Get this collector’s item before it’s sold out.
