KUALA LUMPUR – Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein is confident the appointment of a new Public Accounts Committee chairman will help speed up resolution of the 1Malaysia Development Berhad issue.
He believes the new PAC chairman and other committee members would discharge their responsibilities effectively.
The public who want the 1MDB issue to be resolved should await the outcome of the PAC investigation, Hishammuddin told reporters at the Parliament lobby here today.
The Dewan Rakyat today approved the appointment of Rompin MP Datuk Hasan Arifin as the new PAC chairman, replacing Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed, who was appointed Deputy Home Minister.
Nur Jazlan said he was confident Hasan would discharge his responsibilities well.
He said he hoped that Hasan would obtain the full cooperation of all parties on the PAC so that interrupted matters could be resumed. – BERNAMA
