PETALING JAYA: An MP has questioned the appointment of Marang MP Datuk Seri Dr Abdul Hadi Awang as Malaysia's special envoy to the Middle East.

According to Lembah Pantai MP Fahmi Fadzil, it raised an eyebrow as the appointment came in a time of a public health crisis.

The PKR communications director also trained his guns on PAS deputy president Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man, as the Kubang Kerian MP had once criticised the appointment of Cheras DAP MP Tan Kok Wai as special envoy to China, during Pakatan Harapan’s administration.

“What are the views of Tuan Ibrahim about the appointment of the special envoy to Middle East, especially during a worsening economy? Kesal (regret)? Redha (accepting Allah’s decision)? Syukur (grateful)?” Fahmi asked in a statement on his Facebook page Thursday (April 2) night.

He had attached a screenshot of a posting by Tuan Ibrahim, criticising Pakatan for following the footsteps of the former Barisan Nasional government over Tan's appointment then.

Prior to Fahmi’s remarks, Tuan Ibrahim had congratulated Abdul Hadi, saying that the appointment was important to strengthen diplomatic ties and to carry forward the Muslim unity agenda at an international level.
