IPOH: Nurul Izzah Anwar must have the necessary capabilities to be appointed as a senior adviser to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, says Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu.
"If a father appoints his own child as a senior economy and finance advisor to the Prime Minister and Finance Minister, then she must have tahap gaban level (be at an advanced level)," said the Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) deputy president
He added that Malaysians "can live comfortably" soon under the leadership of Anwar and Nurul Izzah.
"There is no way that when a father appoints his child, that she does not have the capability," he said.
Ahmad Faizal said this at a press conference during a thanksgiving ceremony for those who have helped with Perikatan Nasional's 15th General Election campaign in Manjoi here on Sunday (Feb 5).
"Let's give her a chance to advise the Prime Minister to solve all issues pertaining to cost of living, economy and prices of fuel which can be resolved between two weeks and a month," he said.
On Bersatu president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin's remark that they will send a letter to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to unfreeze its bank accounts on Thursday (Feb 2), Ahmad Faizal said they will know the outcome next week.
"I am not sure if the party has written a letter yet. It's a long weekend until Monday, things will be clearer and we will have an answer next week," he said.
