PM asked Tajuddin to explain his choice for ambassador to Indonesia
According to Bayan Baru MP Sim Tze Tzin, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob should explain why he appointed controversial Umno leader Datuk Seri Tajuddin Abdul Rahman as Malaysian ambassador to Indonesia.
Sim, who is also a member of Parliament’s Special Select Committee on International Affairs, said Malaysia’s ties with Indonesia were a top priority and could not be jeopardized.
The PKR congressman said he was convinced there were many seasoned diplomats who were eminently better suited to navigate the complexity and problems of the two nations‘ relations, citing his experience with Foreign Ministry personnel.
Sim said that although the Yang di-Pertuan Agong made the nomination, it was on the advise of the Prime Minister, who must be held accountable.
“The prime minister must explain why he appointed Datuk Tajuddin as Indonesian ambassador,” he stated in a statement today.
