Chong, Baru to be included in Dr Mahathir’s cabinet?

Chong Chieng Jen

KUCHING: Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is expected to include two Pakatan Harapan (PH) MPs from Sarawak in his next cabinet list.

Reliable sources said the two are likely to be state PH chairman Chong Chien Jen and state PKR chairman Baru Bian.

It is speculated that the decision had been conveyed to the state PH delegation led by Chong which met Dr Mahathir in Putrajaya on Thursday.

Chong when contacted after the meeting refused to divulge anything from the one-hour meeting aside from saying they discussed the direction of future direction of politics in the state.

Malaysiakini reported yesterday when it contacted Chong he neither denied nor confirmed the speculation over his ministerial appointment but gave a broad hint by saying, “Let it be announced first, all right? Just wait for the PM’s announcement.”

Baru was equally tight lipped over what transpired in the meeting on Thursday when contacted by the news portal and did not give any hint on the possibility of him being included in Dr Mahathir’s cabinet.
