KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 9, 2015:

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak needs to make the decision to appoint four new members to the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) soon to give his leadership a good image. PAC deputy chairman Dr Tan Seng Giaw said although the Dewan Rakyat speaker had already postponed PAC’s investigations till October, it did not mean that new members could not be appointed. “If you read the standing orders, Dewan Rakyat can make it (appointment of new PAC members) and if following the orders, there are no problems with carrying on investigations into 1MDB (1Malaysia Development Berhad),” he said when contacted by The Rakyat Post.On who would be eligible to be part of PAC, Tan said there were too many theories in the media. “In reality, anyone’s eligibility is determined by the select committee represented by Members of Parliament (MP) in the Dewan Rakyat, which is chaired by the Speaker. “We (Pakatan Rakyat) are just waiting to see which four new BN (Barisan Nasional) MPs will be appointed to the PAC for us to carry on our work together. I hope the Prime Minister can make a decision fast. “I urge the PM to consider this matter and analyse all laws, especially standing orders, and allow for investigations to carry on as soon as possible. “This is good for the PM’s image. If he said he is not wrong, why create a situation that raises uneasiness and adds to the suspicion among the rakyat. Don’t do that,” urged the Kepong MP. The appointment of four new PAC members was necessitated after four from the non-partisan committee were appointed as Cabinet members, including PAC chairman Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed. The others were Datuk Seri Reezal Merican Naina Merican, Datuk Wilfred Madius Tangau and Datuk Mas Ermieyati Samsudin.
