Amanah submits names of 3 top leaders for Cabinet posts

SHAH ALAM: Amanah president Mohamad Sabu says the party has submitted three names for consideration for Cabinet posts.

Mohamad, better known as Mat Sabu, said it was now up to Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad to decide which ministries to assign to them.

“The prime minister asked for three names from Amanah (to fill ministerial posts) and I sent them on Monday.

“The list comprises Amanah’s top leaders after me,” he told reporters after an event in Kota Raja here last night.

On Saturday, Mahathir named DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng as finance minister, PPBM president Muhyiddin Yassin as home minister and Mat Sabu as defence minister.

Mahathir is expected to announce the names of seven other ministers in his initial Cabinet of 10 ministers very soon.
