MELAKA: There is no need for a Cabinet reshuffle at the moment as the current government is functioning well, especially with the country still fighting against the spread of Covid-19, says Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Special Functions) Datuk Seri Mohd Redzuan Md Yusof.
He said rumours of a Cabinet reshuffle could have been spread from a personal statement made by some leaders, and did not represent any party in Perikatan Nasional.
“I had a meeting with the Prime Minister (Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin) yesterday (Friday) and during the discussion, we did not see the need for a Cabinet reshuffle at the moment.
“When the Cabinet is seen not to be functioning, then the decision to reshuffle it will be made.
“So there is no need to pressure the Prime Minister to reshuffle the Cabinet, ” he told reporters after a dinner with members of the print and electronic media here on Saturday.
Redzuan, who is Bersatu supreme council member, urged all Perikatan coalition party leaders to unite to strengthen the government’s administration for the benefit and well-being of the people.
He said all political party leaders should also be responsible and fight for the people, especially to alleviate their worries over the country’s political crisis and economy which has been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Redzuan, who is Alor Gajah MP, said selfish leaders should be rejected because they gave a negative impact.
He said Muhyiddin should not bow to the demands from some quarters, including calling for him to step down, as he had been performing his duties well.
On media reports claiming that Muhyiddin is expected to meet Umno president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang to discuss the country’s current political situation, Redzuan said they were expected to discuss the consensus, including to end the talks on the Cabinet reshuffle. — Bernama
