Malaysian Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob has kept many key ministers in their prior roles. Following in the footsteps of his predecessor Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, he has likewise left the deputy premiership vacant.
On Friday morning (Aug 27), the newly elected premier announced his Cabinet, which his own Umno party dominated.
The finance minister, Datuk Seri Tengku Zafrul Aziz, has been retained. Khairy Jamaluddin, the former Minister of Science, Technology, and Innovation will lead the Ministry of Health. Mr. Khairy was also the coordinating minister of the National Covid-19 Immunization Program under the previous Perikatan Nasional (PN) administration.
The Rembau MP succeeds Datuk Seri Adham Baba, who served as the PN’s health minister when the party was in office. Meanwhile, Dr. Adham will take on Mr. Khairy’s old portfolio.
