GEORGETOWN, Jul 28 – Actions of the Prime Minister, Dato ‘Seri Najib Razak revamp his cabinet today raises many questions and ulterior motives. Within a few hours after the government terminated the services of Tan Sri Gani as Attorney General, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin was dropped as Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Education.
The Ministry of Home Affairs (MOHA) below Dato ‘Seri Dr. Ahmad Zahid Hamidi (new Deputy Prime Minister) also act appointed Dato ‘Seri Mohamad Fuzi Harun as the new director of Special Branch, to replace Dato’ Seri Akhil Bulat. While people demanded an explanation regarding the scandal involving embezzlement of public funds 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).
“Dato ‘Seri Najib suddenly announced a cabinet reshuffle that saw the removal of Tan Sri Muhyiddin who was once among the outspoken leaders in demanding transparency regarding the investigation of the scandal,” said Naib President KEADILAN Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin.
“Apparently action Dato ‘Seri Najib is not based upon a spirit of concern for the welfare of the people and the national interest but merely a puppet to cover flaws and bury the findings of 1MDB announced to the public. Therefore, I urge Tan Sri Gani to disclose the results of a special investigation team (task force) on the 1MDB who previously headed by him to the people,” he said.
“His commitment and firmness in handling investigations into the scandal should not be paid with his removal from office. Desperate measures Dato ‘Seri Najib in his latest political arena today is clearly repeat what has been done by Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad 17 years ago when acting rid of Dato ‘Seri Anwar Ibrahim when each face charges of embezzlement and corruption,” he added.
