Malaysia's Iron Lady Shocked!!!

After being at the helm of the Ministry of International Trade and Industry(MITI) for decades, Datuk Seri Rafidah Aziz(better known as the iron lady for her tough character) was finally drop from the Cabinet when Prime Minister(PM) Datuk Seri Abdullah Badawi announce the new cabinet yesterday. Speaking to reporters today during a press conference, She says that she was shock and that if the PM did not have the intention to retain her in the cabinet, the PM should have told her not to contest in the recent general election.

She has been link to issues such as favouritism in issuing of Approve Permit(AP) that allows bumiputra's to import cars. It was reported by the media 2 years back that bulk of the AP issued by the government goes to Naza Group, thus contributing to the tremendous wealth enjoyed by Tan Sri S.M. Nasimuddin. She is said to have close relationship with Naza Group's Boss.

She is also believed to have played a part in the Prime Minister's decision to call off the partnership between the ailing Proton and Volkswagen. This was because a successful partnership will dampen Naza Groups market share and profit margin. These few issues highlighted are inter-connected and thus the desperate Prime Minister has no choice but to drop her from the cabinet in a bid to regain the rakyat's confidence.
