The Sabah Chief Minister, YAB Datuk Seri Panglima Musa Hj. Aman effected a minor reshuffle to his cabinet late this afternoon by promoting LDP Vice President cum Minister of Youth and Sports to the much talked post of Deputy Chief Minister while the incumbent, Datuk Raymond Tan Shu Kiah, a newly minted GERAKAN Vice President, retained his cabinet post but was moved to the Ministry of Industrial Development.

The PBS President cum 1st Deputy Chief Minister and Minister of Rural Development, YB Datuk Seri Panglima Joseph Pairin Kitingan took over Datuk Raymond Tan’s previous portfolio of Minister of Infrastructure Development while UPKO Vice President, YB Datuk Ewon Ebin moved from the Ministry of Industrial Development to the Ministry of Rural Development.

Speculation that YB Au Kam Wah, the Elopura Assemblyman would be appointed as an Assistant Finance Minister to fill a vacancy left by the defection of YB Melanie Chia with SAPP to the opposition did not materialise. Instead, LDP Merotai state assemblyman, YB Pang Yuk Ming was promoted to Assistant Minister of infrastructure development, replacing PBS YB Datuk Michael Asang who was appointed as Assistant Minister of Industrial Development.

Meanwhile, UMNO YB Datuk Jainab Ahmad Ayid, the previous Assistant Minister of Industrial Development was moved to the Ministry of Resource Development and Information Technology as an Assistant Minister, taking over from UPKO YB Donald Peter Mojuntin who was appointed as the Assistant Minister of Finance.

The portfolios of the other Ministers and Assistant Ministers remain unchanged. (courtesy of BERNAMA)
