Using A 12 Year To Endorse A Cabinet Reshuffle Is In Bad Taste
Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim shared a lighthearted moment with the media today, agreeing in jest that he should reshuffle his Cabinet before the end of the year. Reporters had approached Anwar after performing Friday prayers at Surau Al-Amin here to ask about speculation that a Cabinet shake-up could take place soon.
Anwar then asked 12-year-old Akmal Afif Yasser Arafat, who was also there to perform the prayers, to answer the queries on his behalf. “When do you suggest (the Cabinet reshuffle should happen)?” Anwar asked Akmal, to which the boy cheekily responded, “2024”.
The prime minister then asked if he should reshuffle his Cabinet before or after the end of the year. The child replied, “Before.” Anwar then turned to the media and said he agreed with Akmal’s recommendation.
Earlier today, FMT reported that a Cabinet shake-up is on the cards and will likely involve the appointment of a new health minister, according to two sources in the know. A high-level PKR source who spoke on condition of anonymity said the reasons for Dr Zaliha Mustafa’s supposed removal from the portfolio were unclear.
In the event that Dr.Zaliha (above) is dropped, the source said, the favourite to replace her would be education minister Fadhlina Sidek, while natural resources, environment and climate change minister Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad would take over the education portfolio.
As for the post of domestic trade and cost of living minister, which has been vacant since the death of Salahuddin Ayub in July, the source said Shah Alam MP Azli Yusof of Amanah might be appointed to inject “fresh blood” into the Cabinet. The source said the reshuffle would see several deputy ministers swapping portfolios.
Meanwhile, a government source said the appointment of a second finance minister could not be ruled out, although any candidate would be appointed “from the outside”. The source, who declined to be named, also said the reshuffle is slated to take place next week. Speculation of a Cabinet reshuffle has been rife, and gained currency after Anwar himself said in October that he was considering it... - fmt
Jangan lama sangat peram tapai...
Anwar terus main teka teki dengan pengisian barisan kabinetnya kasnya mengisi kekosongan ditinggalkan Salahuddin Ayub. Hari ini dia beri peluang kepada seorang kanak kanak untuk membantunya. Anwar tanya budak itu bilakah masa sesuai untuk dia rombak kabinet, apakah sebelum tahun ini atau selepas 2024.Budak itu jawab sebelum dan beliau setuju.
Sebenarnya tidak mustahak bila tarikh itu tetapi yang perlu beliau noktahkan persoalan mengenainya. Ekoran lambat mengemas kinikan kabinet timbul pelbagai spekulasi, ada menteri itu digugur ditukar portfolio dan sebagainya. Sepekulasi ini boleh jejas semangat menteri untuk bekerja.
Walaupun kerajaan hari ini stabil kukuh tetapi tidak baik kalau menangguhkan pengemas kinian apa lagi berteta teki dengannya. Kelambatan itu boleh menyebabkan orang tuduh beliau tidak cekap atau tegas dalam membuat keputusan atau perubahan.
Sikap demikian sedikit sebanyak boleh menampakan beliau lemah dalam mentadbir. Apakah beliau tunggu wahyu dari langit baru hendak bertindak? Yang pasti jangan lambat sangat ibarat peram tapai jika lama tapai boleh jadi mala. - mso
PAS OKkah with western,entertainment-oriented concerts if Muslims are excluded?...
After all the brouhaha over PAS allowing a concert to take place in its own backyard of Kelantan, state authorities have been forced to take action. It has been reported that the organisers of the Loy Krathong festival in Bachok will be fined RM10,000 for violating the conditions set for the event.
According to Bernama, Kelantan local government, housing, health and environment committee chairman Hilmi Abdullah said the event had a permit and did not breach the Kelantan Entertainment Control Enactment, contrary to claims by certain parties.
However, the organiser is facing a fine because the performers did not comply with the dress code while the People’s Volunteer Corps (RELA) officer failed to bar Muslims from entering the concert grounds.
It must be noted that there is clear signage at the Buddhist temple Wat Pathumviharn where the concert was held, prohibiting Muslims from entering.The question also needs to be asked is just how the RELA members were to clearly identify Muslim attendees, short of asking for their identity cards.
The fine is obviously to highlight that PAS is taking firm action after bellowing for the recent Coldplay (pix,above) concert in the National Stadium @ Bukit Jalil in Kuala Lumpur to be cancelled. Perhaps if there is a gig by foreign artistes in the future, PAS should insist that Muslims be banned from attending so as not to prevent fans of other faiths from enjoying some deserving entertainment? Sounds like a win-win situation … except for Muslim concert goers. – focusM
