Yeoh: Proposal to nominate Noraini as PAC chair in line with Harapan manifesto

Bernama  |  Published:

The proposal to nominate Umno's Noraini Ahmad as chairperson of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) is in line with the manifesto of Pakatan Harapan.

Segambut MP Hannah Yeoh said the proposal to appoint the Parit Sulong MP would be well-received to ensure the opposition lead PAC and to have transparency in the check and balance of government management.

Yeoh, who is Deputy Women, Family and Community Development Minister, also looked forward to Permatang Pauh MP Nurul Izzah Anwar's return to the committee following the appointment of a opposition representative from BN to head the committee.

“We welcomed Nurul Izzah’s decision to return to PAC as I feel we have a lot work to do and needed the assistance of all quarters,” she told reporters after the Excellent Award Presentation and launch of Smart Classrooms of SMK Manjalara in Kuala Lumpur today.

On March 22, Nurul decided to quit the PAC after its head Ronald Kiandee was retained as chairperson despite his defection from Umno into Bersatu.

Nurul was firm with her stand that PAC should be headed by an opposition MP in line with Harapan's manifesto in the 14th general election.
