Although Ahmad Zahid Hamidi has succeeded Muhyiddin Yassin as deputy prime minister after the latter was unceremoniously removed from the cabinet, there appears to be no animosity between the two.

The duo were reportedly in a jovial mood as they spoke to each other in Johor today, during a function hosted by the state’s sultan.

“At the function this afternoon, Muhyiddin and Zahid sat to his majesty’s (Sultan Ibrahim Ismail) left. As they ate, the duo kept leaning in to whisper at each other, and Muhyiddin even passed food from his own plate to Zahid. Their interaction was very positive.

“After his majesty has finished his meal, he took the menteri besar (Khaled Nordin) and the duo aside for a chat. At high points of the talk, Zahid was seen wrapping his arms over Muhyiddin’s shoulder, drawing attention from the crowd,” according to the report byOriental Daily today.

Muhyiddin wasdropped from the cabinet as deputy prime minister and education minister during the July 28 cabinet reshuffle, following a fall out with Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak (photo) over the 1MDB issue.

Zahid had replaced Muhyiddin for the deputy prime minister post, and according to Oriental Daily, today is the first time the two had met since the cabinet reshuffle.(

KOMEN: Walaupun gambar ini tidak memberikan sebarang harapan baru kepada perletakan jawatan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib tetapi tambah tidak meyakinkan Najib untuk mengambil tindakan menyingkirkan Tan Sri Muhyiddin dari jawatan Timbalan Presiden UMNO.
