PETALING JAYA: National Patriots Association president Brig Jen (Rtd) Datuk Mohamed Arshad Raji (pic) says it is premature to make any statements regarding the Institutional Reforms Committee (IRC) and his role in it.

The Government’s Team of Eminent Persons has formed a five-member IRC to help bring about “positive change” to the country.

"I was just informed about my inclusion in the panel just now," the retired army officer said on Tuesday.

He added that the committee had yet to sit and be informed on its scope of responsibilities.

"It's a privilege to be with such dignified personalities, I'll learn more and I'd certainly like to contribute.

"My strength is in defence, and if any questions relate to the Armed Forces, I'd voice them," said Mohamed Arshad, the only military personality in the IRC.

His fellow committee members consist of former Court of Appeal judges Datuk K.C. Vohrah and Datuk Mah Weng Kwai, Tunku Abdul Rahman Professor of Law at Universiti Malaya Datuk Dr Shad

Saleem Faruqi and Hakam president Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan.

The IRC will present its findings and recommendations to the Team of Eminent Persons, which in turn will present its report to the Prime Minister.
