The Finance Minister, as with other ministers in the Cabinet of Malaysia, is appointed by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong upon the advice of the Prime Minister.[1] Traditionally, the Finance Minister will be a person other than the Prime Minister, however the Finance portfolio was taken up by Mahathir Mohamad during his tenure as the fourth Prime Minister (1998-1999 and 2001-2003).
