With the General Elections that took place on 9 May, comes a new dawn, a new day, a new government, and a new cabinet. And with the new cabinet, comes many firsts that Malaysia has never seen before. (That was pretty dramatic, wasn’t it? 😜)
But for real, though. Who else is excited about our new cabinet line-up? We’ve got some pretty amazing people in power, not to mention the amount of personal records Malaysia is breaking with the ministers’ appointments. What are they? Let’s have a look!
1. Oldest Elected Leader In The World
Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Prime Minister
2. First Female Deputy Prime Minister
Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, Women and Family Development Minister
3. First Sikh Minister
Gobind Singh Deo, Communications and Multimedia Minister
4. The Only Minister To Have A Routledge-Published Book
Dr Maszlee Malik, Education Minister
5. First Chinese Finance Minister In 44 Years
Lim Guan Eng, Finance Minister
And we feel that Malaysia will only continue to break records and achieve greater heights with the formation of this new government. Over to you, ministers. Make us proud!
