Zahid: 100 days for Ahmad Bashah to prove himself
Commenting on criticisms against the new Kedah Mentri Besar, the Deputy Prime Minister said a politician should not be judged only on his qualifications.
“His other positive attributes have to be taken into consideration as well.
“Ahmad Bashah has served as a state executive councillor and a deputy minister, so he has experience at both state and federal levels. Don’t forget that he has been in politics for more than 35 years,” Dr Ahmad Zahid said Thursday during a four-day visit to Beijing.
He said Ahmad Bashah should be given the chance to show his abilities in managing Kedah.
“Because of his good ties with the Federal Government, perhaps allocations that were not budgeted for can be given (to Kedah).
“I can also ask the Prime Minister to help develop Kedah,” Dr Ahmad Zahid added.
