PUTRAJAYA (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak is expected to announce a reshuffle to the Cabinet on Tuesday, after weeks of speculation that he will be making certain changes to his ministerial line up.

The Prime Minister is expected to make the much-anticipated announcement at a press conference at 3pm .

It is understood that Najib had an audience with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong on Tuesday at 10am but his office was tight-lipped when asked about the meeting.

The Prime Minister had also met with the King on Monday.

The last time adjustments were made to the Cabinet post 2013 general election was in June 2014 when Malaysian Chinese Association (MCA) President Liow Tiong Lai, his deputy Dr Wee Ka Siong and Gerakan president Mah Siew Keong were made ministers.
