A new Cabinet was announced by Prime Minister Mohd. Najib Abdul Razak on 15 May 2013.[2] The ministers and deputy ministers were then sworn in before King Abdul Halim on the following day.[3][4] Notably, the two main ethnic Chinese-majority parties in Barisan Nasional, the Malaysian Chinese Association (MCA) and Gerakan declined to join the cabinet due to their dismal performance in the election.[5]

On 25 June 2014, Prime Minister Najib Razak announced a cabinet reshuffle, which saw the return of the MCA and Gerakan to the cabinet.[6]
