Stop being ignorant, start paying attention.

The new cabinet was announced yesterday.

(Perasan tak, kalau ada interview scholar SELALU nya mesti die tanya siapa menteri itu, siapa menteri ini)
Been through that!
I guess all the HR people just knew that our generation, my generation is a bunch of ignorant people (well, mostly).

Let's change that, shall we?

Makanya the first thing to do is to know more about the Cabinet members.
They run the country.
It only make sense that we get to know who is doing what, under what portfolio.

  • Woman minister - 2. The same number as previous cabinet line up. But at least, better than none. (The US Cabinet comprises of 7 women)
  • The Cabinet is a 57- member line up ; 30 ministers and 27 deputies.
  • Let's talk about the racial composition. Out of 28 million Malaysians, 60% are Bumiputeras, 25% are Chinese and 7% are Indians  - (Laporan Bancian 2010). Being so proud of the multiracial country status, it is a shock to see the scant Chinese representation in the Cabinet [only 2 members].
  • Talk of the town - Of course KJ, the popular Oxford graduate as Youth and Sport Ministers and Datuk Wahid Omar, the backbone of Maybank (incidentally also an ACCA holder) who is appointed as the Economic Planning Minister at the PMD.
  • Datuk Seri Hishamuddin and Datuk Seri Dr Zahid merely exchanged their post. From Defence Minister to Home Minister and vice versa.
  • This time around, the Higher Education Ministry and Education Ministry simply merged which will be headed by 2 ministers and 2 deputies. 
  • Tok Pa, Datuk Seri Anifah Aman and Datuk Seri Idris Jala retain their portfolio. *yayy*

The first fluke of the new Cabinet? Datuk Seri Dr Zahid Hamidi's comment.
Malaysians who are unhappy with the country’s political system should leave the country.
Sudah ada uproar ketidakpuasan hati di Twitter.

Please think, before making any statements.

Kadang-kadang bukan masyarakat sahaja ignorant, politician pun sama naik.
