Malaysia’s new PM, Ismail Sabri Yaakob and his Cabinet have pledged their dedication and their best efforts in order to improve the well-being of the country and its citizens.
This pledge comes as the newly appointed ministers in the Prime Minister’s Cabinet are now facing an uphill game of tackling the exponential rise of Covid-19 cases in the country, as well as ensuring that the vaccination of Covid-19 is rolled out to everyone without fail in Malaysia. To be fair though, the vaccination rate in the country of late has been going on as smoothly as it can possibly be. Indeed, Malaysia’s Covid-19 vaccination rate is one of the highest in the world, and momentum must be maintained at all costs in order for us to achieve endemic status soon.
Is this proof that the new government’s efforts are already showing results?
Newly Appointed Ministers Ready To Get To Work
Senior Minister of International Trade and Industry, Azmin Ali only had appreciative comments towards the king, Sultan Abdullah Ahmad Shah, for consenting to the recent appointment of Datuk Seri Ismail as the newest Premier. Along with that, he was also thankful for the PM for his own appointment and pledged to commit efforts in order to ensure a sustainable recovery and economic growth in Malaysia. On the other hand, Zafrul Tengku Aziz (reappointed as the Minister of Finance) has also pledged that his team along with other agencies under the ministry would do their best for the people and the economy by ensuring business continuity (wherever and whenever it’s safe) and economic resilience of the nation.

Elsewhere, Datuk Seri Reezal Merican Naina Merican who is the Housing and Local Government Minister has said that the government would focus on shouldering the heavy burden of effectively delivering the relevant and necessary services to communities.
The aforementioned Datuk Seri Dr Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar has also doubled down in saying that there is no time to spare when it came to the road to recovery for Malaysia as the new government were only given 100 days in order to produce results upon assuming their duties. The Santubong MP from Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) was also glad that several ministers from the previous administration were retained.
