Malaysia's Prime Minister on Tuesday reshuffled his Cabinet, but made no major changes and backed his sharp-tongued Trade Minister Rafidah Aziz despite his being involved in a car import controversy last year.
The only notable change in the Cabinet was Home Minister Azmi Khalid who was shifted to the Natural Resources Ministry.
Also, new ministers were appointed to take over the portfolios of information, tourism, higher education, and federal territories affairs.
"I can still do whatever I need to do without shirking my responsibilities," Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, who remains finance and internal security minister, told reporters after announcing the reshuffle.
