SEPANG, June 10 — The new Deputy Inspector-General of Police will be announced in a day or two, Home Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin said.

He said the proposed candidate’s name has been given to Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin for consideration.

“We have already given a proposed name and InsyaAllah it will be announced soon in a day or two we can announce (the new Deputy IGP),” he said in a press conference after a walkabout at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), here, today.
