UPDATE, June 25 – IN line with his policy of appeasement towards the Chinese, making everybody happy and keeping things big, the Prime Minister added three more ministers to his cabinet and retained the rest.
The new ministers are MCA President Liow Tiong Lai, his deputy Dr Wee Ka Siong, and the Gerakan President, Mah Siew Keong.
Liow is transport minister while Dr Wee and Mah are ministers in the Prime Minister’s Department. With the new additions, he now has 34 ministers to lord over. Ten of these people are in his department. There are 35 including him. This is not counting 28 deputy ministers

The MCA, despite its mediocre performance at last year’s general elections, also received three deputy ministers' posts. The appointees are vice-presidents Datuk Lee Chee Leong (International Trade and Industry), Datuk Chua Tee Yong (Finance) and Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun (Women, Family and Community Development).
So all the talks and speculations about Muhyiddin leaving and Hishammuddin going up are a waste of time and space. The PM and his merry men march on!
Apologies: Mohd Najib was Finance Minister under Abdullah.
NOT long before last year’s Umno election, Muhyiddin Mohd Yassin, made known to allies that he would not challenge Mohd Najib Abdul Razak for the post of president and gave “tiredness” as his reason.
PM Needs Muhyiddin
