He said that Muhyiddin will resign as Deputy Prime Minister and will be replaced by Datuk Hishammuddin Hussein, the Minister of Defence and Acting Minister of Transport.

“It has been known to the public that Muhyiddin has told his close friends his intention to retire.

“Even though his reason is age, but it is said that he has harboured a deep sense of disappointment over some matters,” he said.

He said that this rumour has spread widely because he has received many inquiries about it; from the north, south and east of the country.

“The two new ministers that will definitely be appointed are from MCA and Gerakan, and the rumour is that the Minister of Home Affairs, Datuk Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, will change ministries to be replaced by the Minister of Tourism, Datuk Nazri Aziz,” he said.
