PETALING JAYA: Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said he is not satisfied with the achievement and performance of Cabinet ministers since they were appointed to their respective portfolios in the new government.

“I’m not satisfied. If possible, I want (something that has been directed) to be settled yesterday, not today,” said the Pakatan Harapan chairman after chairing the Pakatan Harapan Presidential Council meeting at Menara Yayasan Selangor here today.

Also present were PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, AMANAH president Mohamad Sabu, DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (BERSATU) Youth chief Syed Saddiq Abdul Rahman.

Dr Mahathir lambasted the actions of some government officials for delaying decisions until they had to be transferred to another department in order to facilitate the administration.

He said there were officials who delayed the appointment of minister’s officers who were not paid in the last four months. – Bernama
