Najib Razak formed the second Najib cabinet after being invited by Tuanku Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah to begin a new government following the 5 May 2013 general election in Malaysia. In order to be the Prime Minister, Najib sworn in before the Yang di-Pertuan Agong on 6 May 2013. Prior to the election, Najib led (as Prime Minister) the first Najib cabinet, a coalition government that consisted of members of the component parties of Barisan Nasional.
A new Cabinet was announced by Prime Minister Mohd. Najib Abdul Razak on 15 May 2013. The ministers and deputy ministers were then sworn in before King Abdul Halim on the following day. Notably, the two main ethnic Chinese-majority parties in Barisan Nasional, the Malaysian Chinese Association (MCA) and Gerakan declined to join the cabinet due to their dismal performance in the election.
