SHAH ALAM: New deputies for Defence and Home ministries. PM10 DS Anwar Ibrahim on Friday night (December 9) announced the line-up of (27) deputy ministers, completing the Cabinet under his administration. Alor Gajah MP Adly Zahari will be the deputy Defence minister while Home Ministry deputy is Lenggong MP DS Shamsul Anuar Nasarah.
Honestly, I thought PM10 will not appoint a deputy for defence but I guess the minister need someone to be in Parliament – when it is in session – to answer questions from MPs and Senators. As Home Ministry has various agencies, a deputy is necessary. Infact, the last minister, DS Hamzah Zainuddin, had two deputies.
Adly, 51, from Amanah, was the immediate former Malacca Menteri Besar, serving from May 2018 to March 2020. He remains the Bukit Katil state assemblyman apart from MP and now deputy minister post.
Shamsul Anuar, 55, was the deputy Energy and Natural Resources Minister from March 2020 to August 2021. He had served as the chairman of the National Higher Education Fund from 2013 to 2018.
