Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob has unveiled the Cabinet line-up under his administration in less than a week after he was sworn in as the premier

He announced the Cabinet line-up today, 27 August, after he met with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong at the palace in Indera Mahkota to present the list yesterday, reported New Straits Times.

Ismail was tight-lipped when he left the palace after a more than two-hour meeting with the Agong.

In a press conference at 11am today, he announced the Cabinet will consist of 31 Ministries in total, the same amount of Ministries as Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin's administration.

There will not be a Deputy Prime Minister in Ismail's administration for now.
