Stay united and prioritise the nation, says Nga

PETALING JAYA: Stay united as a team and prioritise national interests above self, says newly-minted Local Government Development Minister Nga Kor Ming.

The DAP vice-chairman said that there would be much to be accomplished and welcomed all advice and guidance to restore the country’s glory.

“I am truly humbled, grateful and honoured to be appointed as a Cabinet minister to serve our beloved nation.

“I am aware of the fact that the higher the position, the heavier the responsibility. (While we carry) on our shoulders the hope of our nation, we must stay united to work as a strong team and put our national interest above self,” he said in a statement on Friday (Dec 2).

Earlier, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim announced that his Cabinet line-up consisted of 28 ministers, including Nga.

Anwar added that the new members of the Cabinet are expected to undergo the swearing-in ceremony in front of Yang di-Pertuan Agong at 3pm on Saturday (Dec 3).

Nga succeeded Datuk Seri Reezal Merican who held the position in the previous administration as Housing and Local Government minister.
