MEDIA STATEMENT IDEAS concerned with Cabinet lineup announcement from

3 December 2022

Summary

IDEAS also calls for the separation of the roles of Prime Minister and Minister of Finance as there is no oversight to arguably the most significant portfolio in the Cabinet. [...] “Despite achieving stability, the appointment of Zahid Hamidi as DPM holding a strategic portfolio sends the wrong signal from the government that vowed to adhere to the principles of good governance. [...] "Second, the appointment of the Prime Minister as the Minister of Finance is not consistent with principles of good governance which Prime Minister Anwar has declared as a core agenda for the unity government. [...] The past three administrations have tried to reverse this tradition by allowing a separation of power between the posts of Prime Minister and the Minister of Finance. [...] The success of this government is reliant upon the collective responsibility of each member of Parliament from the main parties that have formed the government.
