Amanah’s Mujahid confirms being included in Cabinet line-up

GEORGE TOWN: Parti Amanah Negara vice-president Datuk Dr Mujahid Yusof Rawa has confirmed that his name has been listed in the Cabinet line-up.

He said the decision was based on his leadership in the party and his political experience. 

“I am ready to serve regardless of the ministerial post given. 

“I consider it as the highest honour to serve the country,” he said after attending the Yang di-Pertua Negri Tun Abdul Rahman Abbas’ Hari Raya Aidilfitri open house at Spice Arena on Tuesday (June 19). 

However, Dr Mujahid said he was not sure of the proposed Cabinet portfolio. 

He also denied that he would be appointed Foreign Affairs Minister.

There are so far 13 Cabinet members, led by Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail said on Monday (June 18) that the full Cabinet list was likely to be announced by the end of this week.
