    No Cabinet reshuffle during my time, says Mahathir 

    KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) – Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad yesterday said there will be no Cabinet reshuffle during his tenure as Prime Minister.

    “No, not during my time,” he said in an interview with BFM  Radio yesterday.

    He was responding to a question on whether a reshuffle of the current cabinet is necessary.

    According to Dr Mahathir, even though the current ministers are all new to the job, they have now got a year’s worth of experience as ministers.

    “If I take in a new minister I will have the task of trying to get him to adjust to a new kind of job, probably he will not deliver as well. A new minister doesn’t mean a better minister,” he said.

    Dr Mahathir said a Cabinet reshuffle does not necessarily solve a problem, instead it might create a new one. “When you reshuffle a Cabinet, we will create a lot of problems, it doesn’t solve problems (but it) may create many problems, that is why I’m not very keen about solving my problems by changing people. I have changed people before, I stepped down but I was told to come back,” he added.

    Meanwhile, commenting on the issues revolving controversial preacher Dr Zakir Naik, Dr Mahathir said his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi did not request Malaysia to return Zakir who is wanted by the Indian authorities since 2016 for alleged money laundering.
