Malaysiakini Letter

Too many portfolios for Dr M to handle

LETTER | We can understand the need to respect cabinet decisions but when the prime minister is said to be the acting education minister following Maszlee Malik's resignation, we need to ask some obvious questions.

Is the country so bankrupt of talent and capability that there is no one else who can be appointed to helm the Education Ministry that has sunken so far low in performance and achievements?

At 94, how much attention can our beloved prime minister give to the ministry given his "unfinished" business of politics?

Hence, do we blame commoner citizens if they start speculating with all sorts of opinion-forming?

Honestly, dear and revered members of the cabinet, tell us, is the 30 million population in the country devoid of just one single citizen who can take on the leadership at the Education Ministry?

Are there no learned, experienced and wise educationist who can be part of the Pakatan Harapan inner circle that sold us the Harapan manifesto?

Until we get some honest answers, it will be a field day for the opposition camps for sure.
