The cabinet is a council of members of ministers who are accountable collectively to the parliament according to the Article 43 of the Constitution, members of cabinet can only be selected from members of either houses of Parliament. Yang di-Pertuan Agong Appoints all Ministers on the advice of the Prime Minister. Members of Cabinet shall not be a member of state legislative assembly, a cabinet member shall resign from the Assembly before exercising the functions of his office. Ministers other than the Prime Minister shall hold office during the pleasure of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, unless the appointment of any Minister shall have been revoked by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong on the advice of the Prime Minister but any Minister may resign his office. Cabinet Appointments By convention, members of the Cabinet are typically appointed from the lower house of Parliament, the Dewan Rakyat. Although Deputy Ministers may be appointed to each portfolio, they are not included in the Cabinet. The Cabinet used to meet weekly every Wednesday, but after the position of Parliamentary Secretary was removed and partial live telecast of Parliament proceedings began in 2008, the meetings were moved to Fridays whenever Parliament sat, to allow Ministers to personally answer questions during Question Time in Parliament Cabinet Composition The composition of Cabinet and the number of portfolios depends mainly on the wishes of the Prime Minister at the time. The Post of Finance Minister was one of the important most and so important as to be a necessity. The Deputy Prime Minister is one that exists by convention, and a Prime Minister could theoretically form a Cabinet without a Deputy. Deputy Ministers exist although they are not considered members of the Cabinet. None Parliamentary Secretary were appointed after 2008 Malaysia General Election. Deputy Ministers and Parliamentary Secretaries are also appointed from members of Parliament. Political Secretary exists and need not be members of Parliament.
