Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad on Wednesday dismissed rumours of a Cabinet reshuffle that would reportedly take place after the Chinese New Year festival, saying there was no such thing.

Dr Mahathir was asked to comment on a recent blog post claiming that Economic Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali would be appointed deputy prime minister after the Chinese New Year.

He said this after attending the Chinese New Year ‘open house’ hosted by Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng and the National Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur.
