It's basically the same boring Cabinet with minor political adjustments.
Well, nothing much Ismail Sabri can do, I guess.
He needs to keep the political balance anyway.
I actually felt sorry for him as he even need to appoint these three jokers into his Cabinet - Shahidan as Federal Territories Minister, Noh Omar as Entrepreneur Development and Cooperation Minister as well as Mahdzir Khalid as Rural Development Minister.
I believe that's just to make the Umno leadership happy.
Personally, I think the trios should just stay as parliament backbenchers at most.
Well, never mind, those are not really crucial ministries for now as we battle the Covid crisis.
What truly matter for me now are the Health and Finance ministries.
I think it's good that Ismail Sabri put Khairy as Health Minister as the guy could now continue his vaccination work which is perhaps the only bright light coming out of the current Covid gloom.
For me, it's okay that Khairy and Dr Adham swapped their posts.
I actually have no problem with Adham as he's a good worker and a real doctor, but he's not as good as Khairy when placed under pressure.
As for the Finance Ministry, I honestly don't mind that Zafrul got his job back but couldn't help to feel Ismail Sabri could appoint someone even better.
My personal choice for the post is Umno deputy president Mat Hassan, who has extensive corporate background and had ran Negri Sembilan quite well when he was its MB.
He could be appointed as senator for that, same as Zafrul.
Mat Hassan's appointment to such an important spot in the Cabinet may also drive a new revival for Umno.
But then again, Ismail Sabri and several other Umno leaders may not like Mat Hassan to be in that position as he may outshine them again as he did when Umno almost died after GE14.
Sigh....the usual stupid Umno internal politicking.
Okay lah, since Zafrul had been appointed, let's just hope he does an even better job this time.
I know that he tried and is still trying his best but the guy simply needs to be more people-friendly.
I mean his policies need for now be focused on lessening the people's sufferings due to Covid such as having another look at the loan moratorium and its interests issue.
As for the reappointments of the other icky characters into the Cabinet, let's just bear with them for the next few months.
Hopefully Khairy and Zafrul (along with the other handful of okay guys in the Cabinet) will do a good job to take us out of this pandemic as soon as possible.
Once we have overcome Covid and can have GE15, let's get a new and better government of our own real choice.
