Mukhriz: Let me focus on Kedah, not rushing for Cabinet

PUCHONG: Despite speculations that Kedah Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir would be rising the political corridors of power under Pakatan Harapan, he wishes to be left out of the speculations as he has his focus on Kedah.

“People have been asking me whether I may be moving to the federal government,” Mukhriz was quoted as saying in response to speculation that he may be appointed to the Cabinet.

“And I keep telling all the bosses [in the ruling coalition], please give me some time to finish what I start,” reported South China Morning Post.

Mukhriz regretted the fact that he was not allowed to finish his term as Menteri Besar under BN previously.

“You have to remember that the last time I was here, I did not finish my term. I did barely three years. I did not have time to even leave a legacy, if you want to call it that,” he was quoted as saying.

Mukhriz said he has a lot of ideas and is “desperately” trying to make sure they move in the right direction for continuity instead of being content with breaking ground.

At the same time, he does not see his political career as a race.

“I am easy. I am in no rush. It’s not as if I have ambitions of you know, ‘Oh, I have to be a minister at this point, and I want this ministry and not that’.”
