Is Malaysia suffering from ‘adviser mania’, asks Kit Siang

PETALING JAYA: DAP veteran Lim Kit Siang has asked if Malaysia is suffering from an attack of “adviser mania”, following reports that the prime minister will be getting another special adviser – on health matters.

He wonders if Ismail Sabri Yaakob will eventually have 31 special advisers, shadowing the 38 ministers in the Cabinet, with each minister also having a special adviser.

This follows yesterday’s announcement by special functions minister Abdul Latiff Ahmad that Ismail is to get yet another special adviser to assist him, with the appointment of a health adviser.

In a written parliamentary reply, Latiff said there were three special adviser roles to the prime minister – on law and human rights, religious affairs, and health.

While Pengerang MP Azalina Othman Said and Kedah Umno chief Jamil Khir Baharom have filled up the first two roles, respectively, the special health adviser is “still in the process of being appointed”, he said.
