Tourism, Arts and Culture Minister Mohamaddin Ketapi is not worried about his cabinet post as his key performance indicator as a minister is “almost 100%”.
The ministry’s KPI for last year was 93%, he said.
“And I know my own KPI was almost 100%. I don’t know if that is good or bad but I’m not worried.
“Why should I be worried? If you want me to work, I will work. You can drop me if I don’t perform,” he told reporters after a Visit Malaysia Year event today.
The Warisan MP was responding to a question regarding yesterday’s sudden resignation by Education Minister Maszlee Malik on the advice of Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
Shortly after the resignation announcement, speculation and rumours were rife about more ministers to be asked to vacate their posts.
Just before the end of last year, several surveys conducted by media agencies on cabinet ministers’ performance showed that Maszlee was among those not desired by respondents.
An online survey done by Malaysiakini also showed that Mohamaddin was among the least favourite, allegedly for not performing in his capacity as a minister.
Meanwhile, when asked if there would be any cabinet reshuffle, the minister said he did not have any information.
He then told the media they should be asking the question to Mahathir instead.
Mohamaddin also refused to comment on Maszlee’s decision to resign.
