Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed today singled out Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz as one of the ministers he thinks should not have been appointed into Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s Cabinet.
He also named Datuk Johari Baharum as someone he thought should not have been made a deputy minister.
Dr Mahathir’s remarks today came after he expressed disappointment last week that Najib had appointed “unsavoury characters” into his Cabinet.
“It is quite obvious that he (Najib) does not depend upon me, for example, he appointed ministers, deputy ministers who I think don’t deserve to be ministers, who are involved in corruption,” he told reporters today.
When asked by the press who these ministers were, he replied: “I won’t tell you.”
However, when pressed further, he added: “Nazri was nasty to me, so of course I don’t like him. And Johari Baharum, has this accusation against him for accepting RM5 million to release people. Of course he was cleared but some people still feel he should not be made deputy minister.”
Datuk Seri Mohamad Nazri Aziz is Minister in the Prime Minister’s department for law and parliament and Johari Baharum is deputy agriculture and agro based Industries minister.
