KUALA LUMPUR: THE PM just announced that the Kementah hot seat has been taken up by Datuk Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, who was recently voted as one of the three UMNO VP. Najib certainly chose the non-favourite candidate to take up the post, long associated with himself, of course.
Ahmad Zahid was the left field candidate for the post. As I had speculated, Jalan Padang Tembak is clearly not a wonderful posting during these hard times. Other ministries remained money magnets even during these times although if this was really a transformational cabinet, it would not really matter doesnt it?
Would there be any radical changes in Kementah or the Armed Forces? With money lacking I doubt it but it will depend on how Ahmad Zahid take on the best course of action for the armed forces. My prayers are with the soldiers, sailors and airmen.
