Nasharudin Mat Isa is new GMMF chief

Former PAS deputy president Nasharudin Mat Isa has been appointed chief executive officer of the Global Movement of Moderates Foundation (GMMF) replacing Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah.
Nasharudin, currently the Nassar Foundation chair, is an Islamic Jurisprudence graduate from University of Jordan and has a Master's degree in Comparative Laws in Malaysia.

"With the appointment of Nasharudin, the GMMF is confident of continuining its efforts to strengthen the relevance and application of moderation in foreign policy and in the country's context.

"The foundation will work closely with relevant stakeholders in realising the operationalisation of 'Langkawi Declaration on the Global Movements of Moderates," said GMMF chairman Tan Sri Razali Ismail in a statement on Wednesday.

Saifuddin resigned from the post after joining PKR on Oct 15. Nasharudin was former Yan MP (1999-2004) and the Bachok MP from 2008 until 2013.
