The media circle is abuzz with news that Sharizat Abdul Jalil, former minister is making a comeback. The Prime Minister when queried on her appointment as his special officer on women’s affairs has kept mum on the subject.
One of the mosts obvious reason is that over the past few days there have been too much negativity churned out by “Tourism Ministers Sons” appointment as Special Officer.
- When will Shahrizat be appointed and sworn in as not only a Special Officer but with Full Ministerial powers?
- Will Rohani relinquished the Women Ministry for Shahrizat?
- Is there in the pipeline a structure to re-engineer the Ministry to accomodate Shahrizat?
Surely,this will get the opposition all worked up with renewed enthusiasm to smear PM Najib’s administration. On the political plus point Najib would have a new “guard” and “barricade” to avoid all the arrows pointing towards him as many will hound Shahrizat.
Even before officially named as special officer on women’s affairs there are “some within”the inner circles in the corridors of power who take pleasure in lambasting openly against Rohani the current Minister. It’s such a shame that these so called “TEAM MEMBERS” are looking down on Sarawak Ministers who have made to the top due to her calibre and being involved in three other ministries before being appointed as Minister of Women,Family and Community Development.
The “malicious and disturbing” statements have been echoed out looking down on Sarawak’s Ministers credibility and this has not gone down well with the ones whose names have been implicated.
The Malay Mail had reported Nazri as saying that Shahrizat had been appointed to assist Rohani. “Rohani is from Sarawak. Probably her focus of work does not cover many of the peninsula aspects… the ministry is used to the management done by those from the peninsula,” Nazri said.
Has this game been played too far, too long and now the “bloggers” are getting very juicy stories that ‘Shahrizat is after all the UMNO Wanita Chief and deserves a place as in charge of Women Affairs instead of a Sarawak Lady Minister? How they want to spin the stories or make up that Rohani is not capable is for them to judge.
Could the SPINS/WITCHHUNT also have started from within Sarawak itself? Plain jealousies seems to be the order of the day.
Rohani was pushed to the corner and our article “https://audie61.wordpress.com/2012/02/06/pbb-infighting-with-abu-9/ was a testament to what happened prior to GE13. You musts click the above in order to get the whole picture of what is actually brewing underneath Rohani’s shoes. This was what was included too in the article and we extract,’The movement ABR-anyone but rohani is gaining momentum and grassroot leaders in the exco committee are being given “poison juices” to see an end to one of PBB’s loyal servants.
How true and more realistic can this quote be” keep your political enemies even closer so that you can monitor them and neutralise their every move.”
It does seem that Najib wants to neutralise Shahrizat in the UMNO elections and the appointment would not come at a better time when Najib knows the vultures are circling ready to take his carcass. The former Puteri Chief and MP Pengerang Azalina Othman Said has already indicated that she will challenge Shahrizat for the Wanita posts and Shahrizat has said that eventhough the National Feedlot Corporation (NFC) scandal ‘hangs” on her incumbency she says she will defend her posts.
Is there an understanding for Sharizat to be appointed as Special Advisor in charge of Women Affairs to assist the Wanita Chief? Without a doubt those in Azalina’s camp plus Rohani’s detractors sensed that Rohani is being downgraded.
One of Rohani’s loyalists in a telephone call said to us,” Boss, has no time to play this political game with all them. There are so much to cover and work for everyone that the Minister has NO TIME to do politiking. She will serve the PM Najib with full enthusiasm,commitment and be responsible to the Ministry. She has given her all to her three previous ministries namely- Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism,Rural Development and Agriculture and Agro-based Industries and she is not about to LET UP AND WILL GIVE HER ALL to this MINISTRY .”
As for all the rumours,spins and voices on the corridors which are seen to be “ghosts with a vengence attitude” the loyalists said.”we know who they are and we will deal with them accordingly in the mosts democratic way we can”
The Minister Rohani will know that whoever PM Najib decides she will abide with the decision and she for one has never failed in her duties as a deputy Minister and now will not fail the PM as a Minister.
The positive signs are there for this ministry to move forward and should Sharizat gets the nod to be a special advisor for women affairs it will also go down well with all the staff of the ministry and all aides close to Rohani.
PM will be assured that Rohani will let her actions do the talking and she will not let “anyone for that matter” destroy the credibility of the Ministry for their own selfish gains.
