Kudos to the prime minister.
The cabinet he has put together is a lean machine, which means all MPs outside the cabinet have to now work doubly hard.
Naysayers and those with a negative mindset should move aside, as Anwar Ibrahim’s speed train is about to roll on.
If you insist this is not a great cabinet, don’t forget you could have ended up with a Pas-Perikatan Nasional cabinet line-up.
We must stand behind and work along with Anwar’s cabinet. It is not just about a ‘unity government’. It is everything to do with taking our nation to its new, reformed destination.

Anwar has broken the enslaving shackles of a race-based, quota-filled cabinet, as had been the practice before.
Anwar’s persevering streak and his determined will brought him this far. We need to believe in this man for what he can and will do for the nation.
Sour grapes, please step aside. The nation is in a great hurry.
Complainants and doubting Thomases should not try to derail the wagons.
As Theodore Roosevelt said, “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are” – and we will cross the rapids.
