2009 Malaysia Cabinet Line-Up

I present you Malaysian government new cabinet line-up as announced by our 6th PM, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Abdul Razak.

Perhaps one of the surprise is the exclusion of Khairy Jamaludin, Umno Youth chief in the cabinet list. To add insult to his injury, even Umno Youth deputy chief and Mukhriz Mahathir, who lost to Khairy in the contest for the Umno Youth top post were appointed with deputy minister post.

Khairy is also the only head of the three Umno wings not appointed minister.

The following are ministers dropped by Najib:

Syed Hamid Albar (Home Affairs), Muhammad Muhd Taib (Rural and Regional Development), Azalina Othman Said (Tourism), Ong Ka Chuan (Housing and Local Government), senator Amirshah A Aziz (Minister in the PM's Department), Mohd Zin Mohamed (Works) and Zulhasnan Rafique (Federal Territories).

Shahrir Samad who had tendered his resignation as domestic trade and consumer affairs minister last week was not considered in this line-up.
