FLYERS listing names of a “new” Cabinet complete with the “Jemaah Menteri Malaysia 2008” headline and emblem are mysteriously circulating in Parliament.
Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was named Prime Minister with Lim Kit Siang (DAP – Ipoh Timur) as Deputy Prime Minister/Internal Security Minister and R. Sivarasa (PKR – Subang) as Deputy Prime Minister in charge of law and judiciary.
Sabah Progressive Party president Datuk Yong Teck Lee was also named Deputy Prime Minister from Sabah/Sarawak.
No one has claimed responsibility and MPs are pointing fingers at each other. Sivarasa said the list was a cheap Umno propaganda. [more]
