The President is however yet to announce Deputy Ministers, MMDCEs and so on...

"The President appoints deputy ministers in consultations with the Ministers and so until they are approved there will be no deputy ministers otherwise he (President) will be going against the Constitution...and I believe majority of them will be passed after the vetting because of the good work they've done in the past" he stated.
