Zuraida denies 1-on-1 with PM today


Plantation Industries and Commodities Minister Zuraida Kamaruddin has refuted news reports claiming that she was scheduled to meet Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob today.

Zuraida told Malaysiakini that she attended the cabinet meeting today as scheduled and nothing more.

“I have not gotten the appointment yet,” said Zuraida in a curt reply to Malaysiakini today.

This morning, Sinar Harian and Berita Harian reported that Zuraida was supposed to meet Ismail Sabri before the cabinet meeting.

Both reports did not cite any sources.

Zuraida’s tenure in Ismail Sabri’s cabinet has been in question since her departure from Bersatu last month.

She has since joined Parti Bangsa Malaysia (PBM) and is set to become its leader.

Bersatu, as a component of Ismail Sabri’s coalition government, has laid claims to Zuraida’s cabinet position.

However, nearly a month after Zuraida’s departure from Bersatu, Ismail Sabri has not indicated that a reshuffle was on the cards.

PBM has three MPs and they all back Ismail Sabri as prime minister. - Mkini
