Chua ribs PM over Rosmah speech

(Free Malaysia Today) – Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak continues to draw ridicule from opposition leaders for allowing his wife, Rosmah Mansor, to deliver a Hari Raya speech that was broadcast on public television.

Johor PKR chief Chua Jui Meng said today that Najib was not fit to be a national leader because he apparently was not even in control in his own home.

“He cannot even control his wife,” he said, laughing.

Najib was the first Malaysian prime minister to have shared the spotlight with his wife when delivering the customary Hari Raya message.

The programme was divided into three segments—one showing Najib giving his message, another showing Rosmah giving hers and the last part showing the two of them giving a joint message.

The broadcast has been repeated several times since Aug 31.

Chua said it looked more like a comedy show than an official message from a prime minister who was serious about his work.
