Cabinet reshuffle today?

There is a strong rumour that Prime Minister Dato Seri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak would be announcing a minor Cabinet reshuffle today, after the weekly Cabinet meeting in Perdana Putra.

Names like Senators Dato Dr Awang Adek Hussain and Dato G Palanivel, recently assumed the MIC Presidency after the retirement of Dato Seri S Samy Vellu, would be made full Ministers.

Other favourites for full Minsitership are Deputy Defense Minister Dato’ Dr Abdul Latif Ahmad, Deputy International Trade and Industry Minister Dato Mukhriz Mahathir (both recently made Deputy State UMNO Liaisons Chiefs) and Deputy Higher Education Minister Dato’ Saifuddin Abdullah.

It is unclear who would be discluded. Bets are on Dato’ Seri Mohd. Nazri Aziz, Dato Seri Utama Dr Rais Yatim and Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yackop.

The last Cabinet reshuffle only involved MCA leaders in June 2010, not so long after the party elections.
