“Anwar may have taken too heavy a burden on himself, having to manage a difficult unity government and the country’s finances,” said Carmelo Ferlito from the Center for Market Education.

“He doesn’t even have a second finance minister (to assist him),” Ferlito, an economist, told Free Malaysia Today.

He also said it was “disappointing not to see Johari Abdul Ghani in the Cabinet”.

Center for Market Education chief executive officer Dr Carmelo Ferlito said Anwar Ibrahim, as the head of a unity government, had the additional burden of building bridges between his once-rivalling coalition partners.

"Having a second finance minister can help Anwar manage the portfolio more effectively.

"I was disappointed that (former second finance minister) Datuk Seri Johari Abdul Ghani was not appointed to the new cabinet. He was probably the best card that Barisan Nasional (BN) had to play, given his profound understanding of the economy."
