Najib: Transport Minister post to be decided after MCA AGM in December

najibLONDON: Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Tun Razak will only decide on the post of Transport Minister, which has yet to be filled, after the MCA annual general meeting (AGM) in December.

“Whatever it is, we wait for the AGM first (in December). Subsequently, I will make a decision,” he told Malaysian reporters here.

The Prime Minister is here on a five-day working visit beginning Oct 27 to attend the Ninth World Islamic Economic Forum that will conclude Thursday.

Najib, who is also the Umno president and Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman, was asked to comment on the decision of the MCA recently that refused to accept any Cabinet post following its severe defeat in the 13th general election.

On Oct 20, a special meeting of the MCA had decided to maintain the resolution.

However, the BN component party passed the motion that the MCA accept Senatorship posts and any post in the Federal and State government, including the executive council (exco).

Currently, Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein is the acting Transport Minister.
