KUALA LUMPUR (Aug 26): The much-awaited Cabinet line-up under newly appointed Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri is yet to be unveiled.
The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) said there would be no announcement by the prime minister on the matter today.
“No announcement will be made by the honourable PM today,” the PMO said in a simple WhatsApp message to the media.
The Cabinet line-up has been heavily speculated to be announced today as Ismail Sabri presented the proposed list to Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah during an audience at Istana Abdulaziz, Kuantan, Pahang earlier today.
Frenzied media have been on “camping mode” at key locations in anticipation of the announcement, including at Istana Abdulaziz and the Perdana Putra Complex, which houses the PMO in Putrajaya.
The prime minister arrived at Perdana Putra at 3.40pm after returning from Pahang and waved at reporters waiting outside the complex.
Earlier this week, he said that he would reveal the Cabinet line-up within the week.
Ismail Sabri, 61, was sworn in as Malaysia’s ninth prime minister on Aug 21.
