KBS would like to stress that any organisation that intends to appoint a KBS officer representing the ministry should obtain prior approval from the ministry.

“KBS will not interfere in the governance of any organisation such as MPC,” said a statement sent late last night, referring to SM Nasarudin’s email sent to the MPC’s executive council members on June 21.

In the email, Nasarudin said he had appointed Mohd Safrushahar (as chairman), Asmadi and Mohd Izwandy into the LDEC to monitor the MPC election on Saturday as independent members to ensure the elections were held in a fair and transparent manner.
