Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim’s decision to appoint his daughter Nurul Izzah as a senior adviser has received criticism from a fellow PKR lawmaker.
Pasir Gudang MP Hassan Karim described the move as “morally wrong”.
“A friend of mine who is also a Pakatan Harapan supporter had asked me for my opinion about Anwar appointing his daughter as a senior adviser on economics and finance to the prime minister.
“To this, my answer to the friend was simple: It was legally right but morally wrong,” he said in a statement today.
This came a day after news broke that Anwar had appointed Nurul Izzah, who is his eldest daughter, to the position.
While Anwar has confirmed that the former Permatang Pauh MP will be doing the job without being paid an allowance, the decision had come under fire from many including the opposition who questioned if it was nepotism. – Malaysiakini
