KUALA LUMPUR: A concerned husband who claimed to have expertise in sensitive marital matters, warned that giving a major political leader’s wife the Selangor Menteri Besar post could have unintended consequences.
“If Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail is appointed Selangor MB, I know somebody who will have a very difficult time explaining to his wife why he could not give her, her own state to run,” said the husband.
“Instead of appointing her to such a serious leadership position, perhaps you can try giving the wife authority to open an absurdly expensive autism centre, or let them take the government’s jet to do some shopping in Paris. Keep wives busy by all means, but don’t let them run anything for God’s sake!”
