Isa Samad as Felda chairman is like ‘pagar makan padi’

Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak was adamant that the selection of politicians to head government-linked companies (GLC) was based on competence and not their background. He tried to justify their appointments by saying that the government was not bound by any policy.

He said, “We (the government) do not have such restrictions. The government makes the appointment based on the competence of an individual, regardless of whether he or she is a corporate person, former government officer or ex-politician.”

Recently, the country’s leading economic advisers publicly warned Najib that corruption could only be checked if politicians were banned from occupying senior positions in GLCs.[ lagi ]
