PUTRAJAYA: The Finance Ministry is waiting for recommendations from the Transport Ministry on who will head Prasarana Malaysia Bhd and Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd.

Minister Lim Guan Eng (pic) said the appointments would be made after receiving the recommendations.

"We have not received any names. We need to take recommendations from MoT.

"We are still waiting for that," he said after attending the ministry's monthly gathering on Friday (Jan 10).

On Tuesday (Jan 7), it was reported that Prasana president and chief executive officer Datuk Mohamed Hazlan Mohamed Hussain had been suspended from his post by the firm's board of directors.

A day earlier (Jan 6), MAHB announced on Bursa Malaysia that Raja Azmi Raja Nazuddin has decided to leave his post to pursue other opportunities.

Following that, Transport Minister Anthony Loke said appointments for the two top posts did not come under the jurisdiction of his ministry.

This, he said, was because Prasarana is a company under the Minister of Finance Incorporated, while MAHB was partly owned by Khazanah Nasional Bhd and listed on the main market on Bursa Malaysia.
