PUTRAJAYA, Malaysia (Reuters) - Malaysia’s prime minister will announce a new cabinet at 0400 GMT on Tuesday, an aide said, a major political challenge after his ruling coalition suffered a heavy setback at elections early this month.

Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi’s National Front coalition suffered the heaviest setback in its 50-year reign, losing its two-thirds majority in federal parliament and five states to opposition parties at general elections on March 8.
