Numan Afifi has taken a swipe at Muhyiddin Yassin’s new cabinet line-up, pointing out that three ministries have been created to replace Yeo Bee Yin’s former portfolio.
Muhyiddin Yassin has indirectly made himself the finance and economic affairs minister with his Cabinet line-up.
The collapse of the PH federal government last week has turned its then biggest party PKR on its head.
The refusal of PPBM's leadership to listen to Dr Mahathir is the main cause of the party’s split into two opposing factions.
Perikatan leaders have criticised PH for not being able to govern but have themselves approached ex-government ministers to help them.
To prove that he’s not a bogus premier, Muhyiddin can easily publish a list of all the 114 MPs claimed to be on his side, the same way Mahathir had done it.

A Kadir Jasin launched a stinging attack today on PPBM leaders aligned with Muhyiddin Yassin, claiming they had behaved as though they were “possessed by the devil”.
