Non-Muslim from DAP can also hold Finance Minister post, hints Anwar

Lim Guan Eng should have the right to remain Minister of Finance. So seemed to be the message delivered by PKR president Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim at the lobby of Parliament today as he responded to a suggestion raised during the Malay Dignity Congress (KMM) yesterday.

This is hardly surprising, as Anwar is said to have agreed that a senior DAP leader be made his deputy, presumably one of two, assuming he is appointed the eighth Prime Minister of Malaysia.

According to sources, Anwar also agreed that the role of Finance Minister be held by someone from the DAP and that the post of AG be determined by the party.

Anwar is known to be a DAP stooge and seems to have no qualms with the chauvinist concern assuming a bigger role in government even if it is to the detriment of the Malay-Muslims.


PETALING JAYA: Lim Guan Eng should have the right to remain Minister of Finance.

So seemed to be the message delivered by PKR president Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim at the lobby of Parliament today as he responded to a suggestion raised during the Malay Dignity Congress (KMM) yesterday.

“The finance minister must be a person who is qualified, a competent professional, who cares for the Malays and Bumi, and cares for all Malaysians,” he said.


On Sunday, Pasir Mas Member of Parliament (MP) Ustaz Ahmad Fadhli Shaari resolved that key government positions should be reserved for the Malay-Muslims who conformed with the Sunni denomination of Islam.

Among the positions he named were prime minister, deputy prime minister, finance minister, home minister, education minister and the attorney general (AG).

Anwar’s objection to the resolution is hardly surprising, as he is said to have agreed that a senior DAP leader be made his deputy, presumably one of two, assuming he is appointed to the role of Prime Minister.

According to sources, Anwar also agreed that the role of Finance Minister be held by someone from the DAP and that the post of AG be determined by the party.

Anwar is known to be a DAP stooge and seems to have no qualms with the chauvinist concern assuming a bigger role in government even if it is to the detriment of the Malay-Muslims.

This probably helps explain why he kept away from KMM and behaves like an opposition politician despite being from the ruling coalition.

Every indicator suggests that Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad will either stay on for a near full term before calling for the dissolution of parliament or establish a new Malay majority coalition before the full term is up.

He has no intention whatsoever of handing over the country’s premiership to Anwar and is likely to consider either Dato’ Seri Azmin Ali, Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah or Tan Sr Rais Yatim for the role following the conclusion of the 15thgeneral election.

This is assuming, of course, that Mahathir is still in control of a ruling coalition post-GE15, scheduled to be held sometime next year.
