The Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) has appointed five lawmakers as Public Accounts Committee (PAC) members, replacing those who has been appointed in the Cabinet positions reshuffling last end of July.
The members of Parliament, of whom all are from the Barisan Nasional are, Datuk Dr [email protected] Mojigoh (Putatan), Datuk Ahmad Hamzah (Jasin), Datuk Nawawi Ahmad (Langkawi) and Datuk Koh Nai Kwong (Alor Gajah).
They were appointed to replace the posts vacated by their colleagues in the ruling coalition, namely Datuk Madius Tangau, Datuk Mas Ermieyati Shamsudin, Datuk Seri Reezal Merican Naina Merican and Datuk Chua Tee Yong.
Also appointed was Datuk Takiyuddin Hassan (Pas-Kota Baru) who came in due to a change in the party’s structure. He replaced Tumpat lawmaker Datuk Kamarudin Jaffar who had recently defected to PKR from Pas.
Last week it was announced that Rompin MP Datuk Hasan Ariffin was appointed to take over as PAC’s chairman.
With the PAC members in placed, perhaps the investigation into the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) will be made a top priority, expedited and make known their findings by year end. This is to avoid any further unnecessary speculations
