DEPUTY Prime Minister Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail said she could not understand why her critics were attacking her over the government’s handling of the 11-year-old child bride case.

“I don’t know. I tried my level best. If others want to attack me, at least in my heart and conscience, I tried my level best,” she said during a radio interview with BFM this morning.

  • Respectfully maam, if PH is serious in pushing for reforms, it must function on performance based principles. Granted it is early days, but your behaviour of being an excellent listener but incapable of being, sounding or even looking decisive, is not going to result in reform. No one can fault you for trying your best but still failing to deliver, but we voters can sure fault PH for not appointing a Minister whos threshold of level best is set much higher.
