He called me to meet him at Putrajaya and we discussed a few things. I asked him why I was called and if it had anything to do with the reshuffle. He nodded. Then I asked him if he had something to tell me. He had a hard time saying so I asked is it that my name is not on the list. He nodded and I said ‘thank you’ and left.
Muhyiddin Yassin, Deputy Prime Minister, recounting how he was informed of his removal from Cabinet less than two hours before the Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak made his official announcement on Tuesday
Nothing can be done unless Muhyiddin resigns … He cannot be sacked as he was elected by the delegates … If he doesn’t leave there is a likelihood that Zahid will go after him. I expect Zahid to do so.
Nazri Aziz, Tourism and Culture Minister, on Muhyiddin’s position as Umno deputy president
The Prime Minister has the right to conduct any reshuffle (of the Cabinet) and he used his power to do so yesterday. We must accept any changes.

Abdul Gani’s sacking
In the interest of the administration of justice, it is important that the public is not misled into thinking otherwise. Under the existing Clause (5) of Article 145, the Attorney-General holds office during the pleasure of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

BERSIH 2.0 hereby declares that the Bersih 4 rally will be held on the streets of Kuala Lumpur, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu from August 29th, 2pm to August 30th. We invite all patriotic Malaysians to join the rally to demand for Najib to step down and the institutional reforms to be implemented so as to end prime-ministerial corruption.
Bersih 2.0 Streering Committee
I want to remind whatever NGO or political parties, not to take opportunity of this current situation. Like on social media, where there are posts by Ambiga encouraging people to take to the streets to call for the Prime Minister to resign his position. We will investigate if this is true, we will call Ambiga to quickly deny this. If not, we will take action, if this is true.
