IPOH (Aug 25): Bersatu has proposed to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob several names deemed suitable to fill the posts of ministers or deputy ministers in his Cabinet.
Bersatu deputy president Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu said the names were finalised in the party’s Supreme Leadership Council meeting recently.
“I believe the prime minister will make a wise decision and bring the proposed names to the Agong for consideration. If the process runs smoothly, the prime minister will soon announce it.”
Ahmad Faizal, who is also the Chenderiang assemblyman, said this at a virtual press conference after attending the opening of the State Legislative Assembly sitting, which was graced by Sultan of Perak Sultan Nazrin Shah at Bangunan Perak Darul Ridzuan here today.
When asked whether he would be sad if not appointed the deputy prime minister, Ahmad Faizal said his focus now is on discharging his duties as an elected representative of the people.
“Everybody knows that I was once the menteri besar of Perak and that I do not hold that post anymore, I believe that everyone can see that I am not sad.
“In fact, I am eager to serve the people in whatever capacity. Now I am back in my capacity as the Tambun Member of Parliament and Chenderiang assemblyman,” he said.
On Monday, Ismail Sabri announced that his Cabinet line-up will be announced this week after obtaining consent from Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah.
