It’s already 17th of May, five days later and these announced cabinet ministers haven’t been sworn in yet. Mahathir should have them sworn in asap.

A pro-UMNO blogger has described Mahathir as running a “one man federal government”

Also, none of the elected MPs have been sworn in either.


Whilst it’s true that Mahathir is busy with going after Najib, however this victory is at risk of being destabilised by the BN in opposition if MPs and ministers are not sworn in.
