Seventh Mahathir cabinet

Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, being the Prime Minister of Malaysia for the second time on 10 May 2018,[1] has formed the seventh Mahathir cabinet after being invited by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Sultan Muhammad V to form a new government. Initially, he announced that the Cabinet will be composed of 10 key ministries only[2] representing Pakatan Harapan parties, i.e. Malaysian United Indigenous Party (BERSATU), People's Justice Party (PKR), Democratic Action Party (DAP) and National Trust Party (AMANAH), as he suggested "to being a small Cabinet" rather than to have "a huge Cabinet".[3] Then, on 21 May 2018, that list has expanded by 13 ministries.[4] On 2 July 2018, 13 Ministers and 23 Deputy Ministers took office.[5] Currently, it has a total of 28 Ministers.[6]
