Nobody in their right frame of mind would be surprised if Khazanah Nasional's Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar tenders his resignation or (refuses to extend his contract) as the Managing Director of the Government's investment arm.
Azman's failures as the head of Khazanah are one too many to be listed. Everyone in the corporate sector seem to know that Azman is on his way out but the BIG QUESTION now is who next?
Certainly there are many others who are more than qualified and experienced to helm Khazanah. Those advising the Finance Minister on this vital appointment - to a seat that holds the dangerous blend of power, influence and unlimited funds - should be mindful of our past blunders.
Identifying the right candidate shouldn't be a big problem to the Prime Minister. Just take a look at the list of GLC heads in the stable. There are a few in 'Your Territory' Mr.PM... and could possibly lead the real transformation of Khazanah Nasional Berhad.
The transformation of Khazanah under a new Managing Director would reflect the wisdom of the Prime Minister.
A brief background (of the long history of Amok) by Another Brick in the Wall. I'd spare the out-going Khazanah boss from YB Wee Choo Keong's chronicles. about MAS, BinaFikir and the failed share 'SUAP' with the Malaysian Indian..eeerr (I think now 'Indonesian') aviation guru.
p/s 'Aiyooooo'...fikir-fikir dulu kalau nak appoint Amok jadi chairman sana-sini, performance record pun bukan exemplary... and is he a winnable candidate as some have suggested ? Again, this (fielding him as a candidate in the next GE) will reflect the wisdom of the BN chairman.
