Zam to be dropped as 'Information' Minister ?

Following the appointment of Umno's 'Information' chief Muhammad Muhammad Taib as a Senator last week, there is now a widespread speculation that PM Abdullah is going to reshuffle his Cabinet and 'Information' Minister Zainuddin Maidin, who is an ex-Mahathir loyalist, would most probably be replaced by Muhammad Muhammad Taib who is also a former Selangor Menteri Besar.

Muhammad Muhamad Taib was once arrested by Australian customs authority for carrying a huge amount of cash in his luggage.

In the recently concluded Umno assembly, Zainuddin was attacked by a delegate for failing to use the Radio TV Malaysia (RTM) to promote PM Abdullah's so-called Islam Hadhari and the criticism was prominently reported by the now pro-Abdullah New Straits Times whose editor-in-chief Brendan Pereira, who is also widely seen as PM Abdullah's spin doctor, has recently been accused of plagiarism.
