Mahaleel’s Job Safe For Now

When asked on Tengku Mahaleel’s position, Rafidah says:

I do not know… I don’t have any links with Proton. Proton is not under the ministry. Proton comes under the direct purview of Khazanah (Nasional Bhd) and Khazanah is under the Ministry of Finance. I do not know.. only the Finance Minister knows.

Our Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi is also the Finance Minister, and the chairman of Khazanah Nasional which is Proton’s single largest shareholder, owning 42% of Proton Holdings Bhd shares. Let’s see what he says.

He has denied any rumours that Tengku Mahaleel has been given 1 week notice to give an explanation on his criticisms on the government’s automotive policy.

He also refuted any talk of Tengku Mahaleel being asked to resign by Khazanah Nasional.

It’s strange how so many newspapers reported on TM being asked to give a show cause letter. It’s all still rumours now.
