MCA urges Anwar to resign as Finance MinisterQURRATUL’AINA QUDDUS
SHAH ALAM - MCA has urged Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to resign from his post as Finance Minister to give his full focus on the nation's administration.
The party's central information chief, Mike Chong Yew Chuan said Anwar must appoint a second Finance Minister who could focus on the economic issues, so that Anwar would be able to give his full focus on national matters.
“The new appointment for this post would improve our nation’s economy and generate more job opportunities.
“He would be able to respond to key issues in a more macro and comprehensive manner and it ensures the coordination and consistency of government policies,” he said in a Facebook statement on Tuesday.
Chong who was recently appointed as the party's Youth wing deputy chief, also suggested for Anwar to sack Economy Minister Rafizi Ramli and Agriculture and Food Security Minister Mohamad Sabu as they were allegedly only causing controversies after failing to perform their duties.
He added that Anwar must take immediate measures as the public was now burdened with the rising cost of living and stagnant income while the government had no clear direction for the economy.
“Following that, we call on the Prime Minister to consider the options I have suggested to focus on solving the nation’s economic dilemma,” he said.
