Taki has been promoted, not demoted, according to Taki

Change in portfolio not a downgrade - Takiyuddin (extracts)

Newly minted Energy and Natural Resources Minister Takiyuddin Hassan said he did not see the change in his portfolio as a downgrade.

The Kota Bharu MP, who was the de facto law minister in the previous administration, said the changes were made because Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob had his own plans and work implementation targets.

“It is up to everyone’s judgment. There are also some people who said that I have been promoted because my previous post was under the Prime Minister’s Department.

  1. It's actually true.

    Being a Minister of a separate standalone Ministry is essentially a promotion.

    All functions under the Prime Minister's Department are under the purview of the Prime Minister. They are not a separate Ministry.

    They have just only been delegated to an administrator of Minister rank, because the Malaysian Prime Minister has aggregated so much centralised power, but no way he has the time to direct the functions himself.
