Communications and Multimedia Minister Salleh Said Keruak has asked the opposition coalition to reveal their pending Shadow Cabinet.

In a blog posting, Salleh said the opposition coalition cannot even set up a shadow cabinet yet after more than eight years in existence.

He asked how they are going to set up a Cabinet if they win the election.

“Maybe Pakatan should first show us their shadow cabinet before being ambitious about setting up a government.

“If a simple thing like a shadow cabinet, which is the common practice in the Westminster system of government, cannot be settled how to move on to bigger things?” Salleh asked.

He added that the opposition has given birth to five coalitions since 1990, and now it appears like it is yet again changing its mind with the inclusion of new party Pribumi, shows that even after more than 26 years the opposition is still not on stable ground.

People do not like to dabble with uncertainties and with Pakatan Harapan (PH) this is what you are getting, he highlighted.

“Pandan lawmaker Rafizi Ramli says if Pakatan wins the next general election Anwar Ibrahim is going to be the Prime Minister if all members of Pakatan accept him and if the Agong pardons him and released from jail, there could be a by-election to make him the next Prime Minister.

“There are just too many uncertain possibilities and grey areas involved here and none can be answered at this stage.

“That means Rafizi is asking the voters to first give power to PH and try to make Anwar the Prime Minister.” he added.

Not only that Salleh highlighted that there are other questions need to be answered such as who is going to become the Deputy Prime Minister and the cabinet line-up.
