Immediate sacking for corrupt ministers, says Anwar | Free Malaysia Today – Free Malaysia Today

PUTRAJAYA: Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim has fired his first salvo against corruption by warning Cabinet members that anyone involved in bribery or misuse of power will be booted out immediately.
Anwar said he would not compromise on such culture in the unity government that he leads.
“I have informed the ministers whom I have chosen, that first and foremost, there should be no corruption.
“I have also informed all component party leaders that if any minister is involved in corruption, I will seek the mandate to sack them immediately,” he said in his speech at the “Program Pertemuan Mahabbah Perdana Menteri Bersama Ulama dan Asatizah” here today.
The prime minister said the reminder was not a political gimmick but rather his confidence that he can free the country of corruption.
Anwar said every politician must show that the political arena is not a platform to display wealth or greatness of power.
“I want to prove that there are Malays who use their power to defend Islam, I want to prove that there are Malays who uphold the principles of mercy and justice in Malaysia. We have to be vigilant so that division can be avoided,” he said.
He said he would ensure that bodies such as the Attorney-General’s Chambers and the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission remained transparent in carrying out their duties so that no one could escape the law.
