Rafidah declined to comment on Proton Advisor Tun Dr. Mahathir’s remarks on Proton’s disadvantagement to the influx of cheap Korean and Chinese cars, after the Cabinet meeting on Wednesday. (Though I don’t really think the Chinese cars play any big role here. Haven’t seen any on the road yet.)
Reporters waiting to interview her after the Cabinet meeting only got a “I have nothing to say” out of her. When they tried to interview Deputy Prime Minister Najib, he said “I will not answer any questions on this. You ask Rafidah.”
However, the Cabinet has asked International Trade and Industry Minister Rafidah Aziz to respond to his criticisms. Unfortunately, she was asked to write a private letter to Tun Dr. Mahathir, as the Cabinet wants the issue between Rafidah and Dr. M to be sorted out away from the glare of the public’s eyes. So we might or might not know it’s contents. Depends on what Dr. M wants to reveal to the rakyat.
