Here Are The Mahathir 17 Paragraph Letter To Mazlee Malik : Asking Maszlee To Withdraw From The Cabinet

According to the article, Mahathir ended the letter with the words: “It is now time for Yang Berhormat (Maszlee) to withdraw from the cabinet.”

“Surat yang saya kirimkan kepada beliau (Maszlee) telah dibocorkan oleh individu yang tidak bertanggungjawab. Seperti yang anda sedia maklum saya tidak mengatakan bahawa semua yang Maszlee lakukan salah. Ada juga perkara yang beliau lakukan itu betul.

“Tetapi atas sebab yang lain itu saya rasa Maszlee perlu meletak jawatan, dan dia bersetuju, lalu meletak jawatan,”

Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad had urged Maszlee Malik to quit as education minister for going against cabinet decisions, according to a report by The Malaysian Insight.

Claiming to have sighted the letter, TMI reported that the letter was sent to Maszlee on December 27 last year but Maszlee was on holiday with his family in the US at the time.

Describing the letter as a “17-paragraph missive”, the article claimed that Maszlee failed to follow cabinet’s directive on the teaching of Jawi in schools, free internet service for schools and the free breakfast programme for pupils.

According to the article, Mahathir ended the letter with the words: “It is now time for Yang Berhormat (Maszlee) to withdraw from the cabinet.”

Maszlee was ‘advised’ by Bersatu to quit as education minister

Maszlee Malik had received a letter from Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia “advising” him to vacate the education minister post, purportedly following several complaints and controversy, a source within the party has confirmed.

The source, who is not authorised to speak on the matter, however said the letter did not say why Maszlee should have quit ― prompting the Simpang Renggam MP to seek the advice of party chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad earlier before his announcement.

“The letter was sent by the party, but did not detail the reason he should vacate the post,” the source told Malay Mail.

Malay Mail is currently seeking to verify the matter with Bersatu.

Surat kepada Maszlee: Saya tidak kata semua dia lakukan salah – Tun Mahathir

‘Peletakan jawatan Menteri Pendidikan, Dr Mazlee Malik adalah atas persetujuan beliau sendiri.’

Demikian jelas Perdana Menteri Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad berhubung isu surat yang dikirimkan oleh beliau kepada mantan Menteri Pendidikan itu.

Ujar Tun Mahathir lagi, beberapa isu yang terkandung di dalam surat terbabit yang membawa kepada tindakan peletakan jawatan oleh Maszlee, dan siapakah penggantinya akan diputuskan oleh beliau kelak.

“Jawatan Menteri Pendidikan akan diputuskan oleh saya kerana itu adalah prerogratif saya.

“Surat yang saya kirimkan kepada beliau (Maszlee) telah dibocorkan oleh individu yang tidak bertanggungjawab. Seperti yang anda sedia maklum saya tidak mengatakan bahawa semua yang Maszlee lakukan salah. Ada juga perkara yang beliau lakukan itu betul.

“Tetapi atas sebab yang lain itu saya rasa Maszlee perlu meletak jawatan, dan dia bersetuju, lalu meletak jawatan,” kata Perdana Menteri pada dalam sidang media selepas mesyuarat JKKMAR di Putrajaya hari ini.
