Nurul has gone on record to say that she found it difficult to work with a former dictator, which is ironical, given that the man she was referring to, Mahathir, is a man she herself persuaded to lead Pakatan Harapan. Source (pic): TTF Files

Permatang Pauh MP Nurul Izzah Anwar has returned as a member of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) following a move to replace the present chairman Datuk Seri Dr Ronald Kiandee.

On March 22, Nurul Izzah quit the PAC after having earlier spoken out on the government’s move to retain the PAC chair, which went against its election pledge that it would go to a member of the opposition to ensure a check and balance.


KUALA LUMPUR: Permatang Pauh MP Nurul Izzah Anwar has returned as a member of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) following a move to replace the present chairman Datuk Seri Dr Ronald Kiandee.

“I agreed to rejoin PAC after discussions with Chief Whip (Datuk Johari Abdul) and getting approval from the Speaker (Datuk Mohamad Ariff Md Yusof),” Nurul Izzah said in a WhatsApp message shared with reporters.

She said she also hoped that the reformation agenda would continue to benefit the people and the nation.


When met outside a PAC closed-door meeting, Dr Kiandee confirmed that Nurul had attended the meeting.
