PETALING JAYA: Pakatan Harapan has made another U-turn after its politicians were appointed as trustee board members of the Federal Territories Foundation, says Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.
The MCA president said that the coalition’s previous stance was that there should not be any political appointees at state government-linked companies.
In a statement, Dr Wee asked his followers to meet the board members.
Checks showed that Federal Territories Minister Khalid Abdul Samad is the chairman.
Other board members include Khalid’s special officer Hayatul Kamil Termudi, Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia division chief Mohamad Riadz Mohamad Hashim, PKR coordinator in Sembrong parliamentary constituency Onn Abu Bakar, Parti Amanah Negara Federal Territory vice chief Ahmad Zamri Asa’ad Khuzaimi and USJ Taipan DAP branch pro-tem vice chairman Muhammad Khairil Khalid.
“I believe that Malaysians are not jealous. It is strange that Pakatan leaders did not walk the talk.
“Aren’t they the ones who always call for the abolition of political appointments?” he asked.
In another statement, Dr Wee questioned Deputy Education Minister Teo Nie Ching’s statement that the people should not compare the allocation from the government for different types of schools.
“Teo said education is not a zero-sum game and that the public should not compare the allocations given different types of schools.
“This was contrary to her statement before she became deputy minister,” he pointed out.
Dr Wee also noted that the allocation received by Chinese primary schools did not match the number of students they have.
“There were 1,297 Chinese primary schools.
“The number of Chinese primary schools is more than Tamil schools (523), Christian schools (438) and Sekolah Agama Rakyat (116).
“There are more students in Chinese primary schools but why is the allocation for these schools the same? he asked.
Dr Wee also posted a video filmed at midnight that featured a compactor deployed for road paving work in Semenyih.
“Paving work is expected to be completed over the next few days during the campaigning period,” he said.
