  • That's how it was supposed to be. It was not "unprecedented" nor "embarrassing". Every state has different conditions and circumstances so by right, it's up to them to follow or otherwise.

  • Those in UMNO will continue to make noises till they get a position in the GLCs or some government agencies. Once they are appointed, you will not hear any noises or complaints from them again. This matter notwithstanding, the backdoor Economics minister has been underperforming, thats for sure. Hes probably too busy trying to secure his political position but it wont be for long before hes ousted when his usefulness is gone.
