Proton LogoAn unnamed source informed national news agency Bernama that the proposal to renew the contract of current managing director of Proton Datuk Syed Zainal Abidin Syed Mohamed Tahir has been presented to the Prime Minister and they were only waiting for his decision on the matter now.

It seems that the matter of top executives in Proton have to go through several stages of approval including Investment Committee of Khazanah Nasional Bhd, the Second Finance Minister, and the Prime Minister.

The source added that Syed Zainal would most likely get his contract renewed. I’m not sure what Pak Lah is waiting for.
