The government appointed Raja Idris Raja Kamarudin as executive consultant and advisor to Kumpulan Darul Ehsan Bhd (KDEB).
He also currently serves as consultant to Rototype International, Significant Technologies Sdn Bhd and the Markfield Institute of Higher Learning in Leicester, England.
Prior to this appointment, Raja Idris has held positions in various companies including TDM Bhd group managing director and Siemens Malaysia information and communications network vice president.
This comment by ELOOFK in TMI on April 12 is prophetic:
Well done!!! Must be a Coup of the Year for Selangor MB, Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim. Lets see any UMNOputras try to run Raja Idris down!!!
The above found fulfillment in the persons of these three:
Selangor Umno secretary has questioned why and how Raja Idris, 58, was picked to be the chairman of , and executive consultant and adviser of .
Mohd Zin said there was much unhappiness about how Selangor GLCs are being run, including the removal of senior officials.
(Who is unhappy, if not only UMNO has-beens? Give us some names of those who can turn around companies like what Raja Idris did when PAS managed Terengganu.)
(These officials were leftovers from the former Selangor UMNO regime. In management we call this auditing…..housekeeping….even Khir Toyo presented brooms to non-performers instead of sacking them. Why keep deadwood unless used as driftwood to decorate the office.)
Malaysian Trades Union Congress said it would not be fair to others if the appointment was politically motivated, adding that “priority should be given to locals”.
(IF, key word….what did UMNO Selangor achieve? Were not Khir Toyo’s appointments political? Remember a railway gatekeeper building his mansion on TOL land. This late clown was even injected into the Selangor Badminton Association. By the way isn’t the Chairman of NFC very local? Ever wonder why Singapore recruited our former chief of Petronas, Hasan Merican. If you want quality, you recruit the BEST IN CLASS and not local dungus!
(Why trust APCO, FCB etc….we do not have credible Malaysian PR outfits?)
MCA central committee member Loh Seng Kok urged Raja Idris to give up his British citizenship, asking whether it was wise for him to have access to so much information involving state assets.
(Did MCA urge Yen Yen to give up her Australian PR? If full knowledge of state assets (previously HIDDEN, no?) contribute to gains in Selangor like what is happening now, why not? Grapes are always sour to some.)
THESE THREE HAD BETTER WATCH THEIR TONGUE QUESTIONING THE SULTAN OF SELANGOR ON THE APPOINTMENT OF HIS COUSIN!
