MALAYSIA GETS NEW TRANSPORT MINISTER

0

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia’s premier on Wednesday appointed a new transport minister to replace Hishammuddin Hussein, who took the lead during the search for missing flight MH370. Hishammuddin, who is also defense minister, had provisionally held the transport portfolio after the post was left vacant following the last elections a year ago. He led the nation’s search for the Malaysia Airlines plane that vanished on March 8 with 239 people aboard. Prime Minister Najib Razak said in a widely-expected announcement that Liow Tiong Lai, a former health minister and president of the Malaysian Chinese Association, would lead the transport ministry.
