Kuala Lumpur
– Minister of Rural and Regional Development Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob will submit the list of candidates for the new chairman of Mara to Prime Minister Najib Razak soon.

He said the ministry had identified several candidates to replace Annuar Musa, who did not wish to be reappointed to the post.

“I will submit two or three names and then, it is up to the prime minister to decide (who will be the next Mara chairman),” he said after opening Pasir Puteh Umno delegates’ meeting in Kelantan yesterday.

Annuar, whose contract ended yesterday, had recently announced that he did not wish to continue holding the post as he wanted to concentrate on Umno in view of the coming 14th general election. – Bernama
