Railwaymen Union of Malaysia (RUM) president Abdul Razak Md Hassan has asked Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to appoint former Transport Minister Loke Siu Fook to serve in the position again.

He said the union’s request is based on Loke’s performance as the Minister of Transport from May 2018 to February 2020.

Loke was no longer the minister after the infamous Sheraton Move, which led to the fall of the 22-month-old Pakatan Harapan (PH) government.

He pointed out that the association believes that if Loke becomes the Minister of Transport, it can bring spillover benefits especially to help improve public transport to be more efficient.

The union believes that the appointment would benefit the public transport, especially in making it more efficient. At the same time, he is very considerate, and will bring benefits to Malayan Railway Corporation and its employees.
