Shahrir Abdul Samad does not want to be part of Najib’s government

Shahrir to submit resignation on Wednesday

DATUK Shahrir Abdul Samad will submit his resignation as Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister at Wednesday’s Cabinet meeting.

He said he had decided not to be part of any new Cabinet line-up after he lost in his bid for one of 25 seats on the Umno supreme council on Thursday.

He also said that he would not accept any offer of an appointment to the supreme council.

Asked if he would reconsider his decision to quit his Cabinet post which he has held for only a year, Shahrir said his decision was final.

On the four mentris besar who lost, Shahrir said he was surprised by the results.

“I am not certain how to answer. I cannot explain, especially when they are from states that had been able to garner the support of the people during the last elections,” he said.

Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman (Johor MB), Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob (Pahang), Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan (Negri Sembilan) and Datuk Seri Dr Md Isa Sabu (Perlis) failed to win a seat on the supreme council.
