TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD, DATUK SERI SHAHRIZAT ABDUL JALIL & DATUK ABDUL HAMID OTHMAN RECEIVE A TOTAL OF RM1.14 MILLION ANNUALLY FOR BEING ADVISERS

The Member of Parliament for Kulim Bandar Baru, Zulkifli Noordin (PKR) was given a written parlimentary reply last week that the former premier, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad receives RM180,000 annually as a Petronas Adviser, while Datuk Seri Abdullah’s advisers Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil, in charge of women and social development affairs and Datuk Abdul Hamid Othman, in charge of religious affiars received RM404,726 and RM549,675 respectively when they do nothing - no work at all.
Its seems surprising that there are many poor Malaysians in need of financial support and yet unable to obtain them.

The Barisan Nasional government just seem to be wasting public funds and the rakyat may have to demand a proper explanation from the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

This clearly illustrates that the Barisan Nasional government is incompetent in managing public funds as entrusted to them. They just seem to be wasting them with their close associates.

Its time BN gives a full disclosure and make every public body accountable to the rakyat, especially Petronas.
