Ex-IGP: Accept political or GLC posts for rakyat's betterment, not personal gain


Former inspector-general of police Musa Hassan said those who accept political or GLC posts must not do so for personal gain.
Instead, he said the person’s main purpose must be for the betterment of the people.
“Who accept any position be it political, government-linked companies (GLCs) or public service, the main objective is to serve and ensure it is for the benefit and the interest of the rakyat and not for personal interest,” he said in a Twitter posting today.
He was responding to a netizen who asked him if accepting a GLC post can be considered in the interest of the people.
Musa had earlier tweeted that “anyone who wishes to stay in power should place the interest of the rakyat above personal interest.”
The former police chief, however, did not refer to any specific persons in his social media posts.
However, this comes in the wake of leaked audio recordings allegedly of Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin laying out plans to lure Umno MPs to join Bersatu by offering ministerships or GLC posts.
The audio in question was leaked by a Facebook page aligned to Muhyiddin’s rival Dr Mahathir Mohamad and is purported to be from the Bersatu supreme council meeting on Feb 23.
In the recording, a man whose voice resembles the eighth prime minister can be heard saying:
"If they know a new government is being formed, with Umno in, 'Why don't you (Umno MPs) join in now’...Especially if there are positions. If not a minister, then chairperson of a GLC," the man said.
The Bersatu meeting took place just before the infamous ‘Sheraton Move’ which led to the exit of Bersatu from the then-ruling Pakatan Harapan coalition, triggering the collapse of the Mahathir-led government. - Mkini
