The home ministry will meet Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad to decide on the replacements for the inspector-general of police (IGP) and his deputy, who are retiring soon.
“I will discuss this with Dr Mahathir in the near future because their retirement is coming up.
“A decision will be made soon,” Home Minister Muhyiddin Yassin, who is also the PPBM chairman, said today.
IGP Mohamad Fuzi Harun is slated to retire on his birthday this May. His deputy, Noor Rashid Ibrahim, will retire on March 17.
On another matter, Muhyiddin, speaking at a press conference here, said his party was ready to battle it out in the March 2 Semenyih by-election.
He said he was unsure if PAS and Umno’s alliance will break up the Malay vote in Semenyih and questioned if the support from both parties was “still strong”.
“I do not know if all PAS members agree with this collaboration,” he added. “Whatever it is, we will see how.”
Muhyiddin also countered allegations that the Pakatan Harapan government does not fight for Malay rights.
He said the by-election will be an “opportunity” to set the record straight with the public on this matter.
“I have already clarified some issues that have been brought up and twisted by the opposition, like the issue of Malays and Islam,” Muhyiddin added.

Malaysians Support Datuk Amar Singh As Our Next IGP
Tan Sri Fuzi Harun has been a very good police officer. Maybe one of the best after Tun Hanif Omar. I really hope KDN – Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and The New Malaysian Goverment will appoint Datuk Amar Singh as our next IGP when TS Fuzi Harun retires. It’s about time we select the best of the best for the Rakyat. I simply love the new process of democratic transfer that happened on 9th May 2018. It’s a new Malaysia. It’s the best time we get rid of the race card played by most the last 60years. Remember we can be One if only we start thinking and acting as a unit. I love my New Malaysia! MalaysiaKu forever. – Prakash Murugiah
Federal Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID) director Commissioner Datuk Seri Amar Singh Ishar Singh has found unexpected international fame amidst the high-profile investigation into scandal-plagued 1MDB.
The lawman led a series of raids that combed through luxury condominiums in downtown KL and the private residence of former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
Amar’s no-nonsense demeanour has earned him the tagline “Singh Is King” among netizens, a nod to the popular Indian comedy-action film, Singh Is Kinng.
But who exactly is Datuk Seri Amar Singh? Here’s a brief look at his background:
1. He holds multiple academic degrees in various disciplines
In addition to an LLB from the University of Buckingham, Amar also has a Bachelor of Science degree and a Master’s in Criminal Justice from Universiti Malaya (UM); and a Diploma in Syariah Law and Practice from the International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM).
2. He joined the police force 35 years ago
Amar started his career at the Ipoh district police headquarters after completing Assistant Superintendent Cadet police basic training in 1983.
He then steadily moved up the ranks and held different positions in the police force.
3. He became the first Sikh officer to hold the Kuala Lumpur Police Chief post
In 2016, Amar was promoted to take up the Kuala Lumpur Police Chief role, which he said was an honour for minority races in Malaysia.
“This also proves that the force’s leadership is colour-blind in promoting its officers, as well as in executing our duties,” he said.
Seventeen months later, he was promoted to head the Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID).
4. His father and maternal grandfather were policemen
Amar’s father, Ishar Singh, joined the Federated Malay States Police in 1939 – a year after coming to Malaya from Punjab. According to an English language news portal, Ishar was a pioneer member of a special police jungle squad.
Amar’s maternal grandfather, Bachan Singh, was a constable in the early 1900s.
