KUALA LUMPUR, June 25 (Bernama) -- The swearing in ceremony for ministers and deputy ministers will be held on July 2 at Istana Negara.

Comptroller of the Royal Household of Istana Negara Datuk Wan Ahmad Dahlan Abdul Aziz said the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Muhammad V had received the list of names of ministers and deputy ministers from the Prime Minister's Office on June 20.

"The names of the Cabinet ministers have been approved by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and have been returned to the Prime Minister's Office on June 22, namely, on Friday," he said in a statement tonight.
