The new Malaysian cabinet is notable for its lack of a deputy prime minister post. Instead, Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin has appointed four senior ministers to share the load and assist him in his ministerial duties. So, to understand the traditional role of a deputy prime minister, BFM speaks to constitutional lawyer Lim Wei Jiet, who explains the constitutional position of a deputy prime minister.
