Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin says that while the four senior ministers he appointed are all “equal”, Datuk Seri Azmin Ali, who is also International Trade and Industry Minister, will chair Cabinet meetings whenever he is absent.

If Azmin was also not available, he said the next minister in charge would be Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, who is Defence Minister.
