KUALA LUMPUR, July 25 — Datuk Liew Vui Keong disclosed today that Umno president Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi is the only candidate nominated to be chairman of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC). The minister in the Prime Minister’s Department in charge of law and parliamentary affairs said the Pakatan Harapan government will not have a candidate for the post. “There is only one candidate, from the Opposition. “We are only considering those from Opposition because it is part of the Pakatan manifesto promise,” Liew told reporters in Parliament here. Zahid later said that he has yet to receive an official offer to become the PAC chairman, and insisted that any decision will only be made after consulting his Barisan Nasional partners. “I will discuss with all the partners after the offer is made and reach a decision,” he said.
