Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Ismail Sabri Yaakob has demanded the resignation of Datuk Mokhzani Mahathir as Sepang International Circuit (SIC) Chairman, citing the post as a government appointment which 'belong' to UMNO to decide. Datuk Ismail Sabri claimed that SIC is a subsidiary of Malaysia Airport Holdings Berhad, which is controlled by the government through Khazanah Holdings and the government appoints its Chairman.

Since Datuk Mokhzani has recently resigned from UMNO, he will have to relinquish this position. Is he not a citizen of Malaysia to hold this post?

It was reported that Datuk Ismail Sabri had not attended the launch which was held at the same building in protest although he was scheduled to attend.

Since this is an international sports event and since Malaysia is trying its best to compete in the international sports world of events, whatever the circumstances, Datuk Ismail Sabri should have attended the launch since Datuk Mokhzani's appointment has not be relinquished yet. There are procedures that the government need to follow, giving sufficient notice and so forth.

Furthermore, undermining ones capabilities is something UMNO always lacks. This project which the rakyat had invested millions would be wasted if no proper, capable and responsible officer manages this project.

But why care, UMNO is all that counts. These sort of 'short thinking citizens' must be removed from office.

One think the government must always realise, the PEOPLE FORM THE GOVERNMENT and that is why UMNO and Barisan Nasional had lost drastically in the recent polls due to its uncaring, ineffective, inefficient and corrupt attitude.
Its time for Malaysians to change this 'useless' Barisan Nasional government.
