KUALA LUMPUR: A Wanita Umno delegate has questioned the Government for appointing non-Malays in top positions in government-linked companies (GLCs).
“When top positions are filled by other races, the effect is that opportunities for contractors, consultants and lawyers are all given to them (their community),” Hamidah Arshad (pic) from the Bagan division said in her debate at the Wanita Umno assembly Wednesday.
Hamidah said there are other qualified Malay professionals who could have easily filled the positions.
“GLCs belong to us, but why are we giving them (top positions) away to other races? Who will help our own race? Whose fault is this? It’s ours,” she said.
