Nurul Izzah no longer PM's senior economic and financial advisor

KUALA LUMPUR: PKR vice president Nurul Izzah Anwar has confirmed that she is no longer serving as senior economic and financial advisor to the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

The former Permatang Pauh member of parliament, who was previously in the spotlight because of the controversy surrounding her appointment as an advisor to the prime minister, said she now joined the Finance Minister's Special Advisory Body chaired by Tan Sri Mohd Hassan Marican.

"Mohd Hassan has invited me to join the organisation to help their efforts in strengthening the economy of the country and the people.

"I humbly accept this responsibility. Through this new role, I will no longer serve as senior economic and financial advisor to the Prime Minister," she said in a statement today.

The eldest daughter of Anwar and Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail explained that she greatly appreciated every opportunity to contribute to the country in order to create a better future for Malaysia.

"I take this opportunity to express my full appreciation for every support given, both from the public and the entire public service team and government community.

"Malaysians as a whole expect a brilliant future and a complete unification led by the Prime Minister together with the unity government.

"I hope that by assisting Tan Sri Mohd Hassan and other committee members, I will be able to benefit our beloved country. Thank you to the entire committee. Let us all contribute in any capacity for the sake of our country," she said.
