Former higher education minister Idris Jusoh has been appointed Felda chairman for a two-year term, the latest in a slew of Perikatan Nasional MPs to be appointed to plum government-linked company (GLC) posts.

Felda said in a statement that the Besut MP’s term took effect on May 1.

Idris replaces Mohd Bakke Salleh who was last week appointed Telekom Malaysia chairman.
