Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said the decision to replace Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin in the Cabinet was a difficult one indeed but it had to be taken for the Cabinet to function as one solid and unified team.
DAP, PKR and Gerakan Harapan Baru (GHB) leaders today called on members of parliament, including Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and other BN lawmakers, to cast votes of no confidence on Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak in the Parliament.
Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has been dropped as the deputy prime minister in the cabinet reshuffle this afternoon. Home minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi has been appointed the new deputy prime minister.
According to Bernama, Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Ali Hamsa has announced that Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail would not be reappointed following the expiry of his tenure on July 25, citing health reasons.
