Reported by Astro Awani, more that one minister from Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) will see a reshuffling believed to make way for Bersatu Deputy President a position in Putrajaya.
According to sources the Prime Minister and Bersatu President have me the two ministers following the conclusion of a Cabinet meeting in Putrajaya yesterday.
“The ministers involved are currently on top of the list to relinquish their portfolios and make way for others to replace them.”
Reports hinted that Perak former Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahad Faizal Azumu will be given a Federal position, in line with his position as Bersatu Deputy President.
However, Faizal Azumu has mentioned that he had no interest in a Federal position but rather wants to serve the rakyat as an assemblyman.
“I want to rest for now. I was shocked when I was called to the Prime Minister’s office yesterday, right after when I lost my position the day before.”
“Afford me some time to focus on work in my own constituency. I am not thinking about any other position.”
Former politician Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek, however, commented otherwise.
Taking to Facebook, he slammed Faizal Azumu for refusal to enter a role in Putrajaya.
“Previously, the role of a party’s Deputy President was tough, especially since he is tasked to look after the party’s wellbeing around the country.”
“With the President focusing on matters relating to the country as Prime Minister, it is up to his Deputy to organise and manage the strongest party in the country, with a huge number of party members, with a huge number of divisions and with a lot of issues arising.”
“It is inappropriate for him to limit himself to just one state. This was what it used to be, maybe it is different now.”
