Muhyiddin to name Hisham as DPM

The Malaysian Insight

Foreign Affairs Minister Hishammuddin Hussein is vaulting over other leaders, such as PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang and Bersatu’s Azmin Ali, if he assumes the No. 2 post. – AFP pic, January 11, 2021.

HISHAMMUDDIN Hussein will be made deputy prime minister as early as this week as Muhyiddin Yassin tries to shore up his Perikatan Nasional (PN) administration and stem defections from Umno, sources said today. 

The Malaysian Insight understands the move could anger instead of appease Umno after the party’s Supreme Council’s decision to review any electoral pact with Bersatu and Kelantan Umno chief and Machang MP Ahmad Jazlan Yaakub’s decision to withdraw his support for PN over the weekend.
