Khairy rubbishes deputy minister’s offer reports


KUALA LUMPUR: Umno Youth Chief Khairy Jamaluddin, who has been speculated to receive an offer for a deputy minister’s post in a possible minor Cabinet reshuffle, has dismissed all such reports.

The Rembau MP said such reports were merely rumours but declined to comment further.

Khairy, the son-in-law of former Prime Minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, has come under fire from various bloggers over the possibility of being given the post after Datuk Seri Sulaiman Abdul Rahman decided to take down from his post as deputy Tourism Minister.


After the recent report in Utusan Malaysia, we here in BigDogDotCom raised the question and did an analysis why Prime Minister VI Dato’ Seri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak would probably not make Khairy a Deputy Minister in his administration.

That invited a lot of debate, which the majority was against the appointment. The opposition against Khairy being made a Deputy Minister in PM Najib’s administration has its strong merits.

Pemuda UMNO: Pilih politikwang atau masa depan anak bangsa?

The fact is that, Khairy has been a very unpopular and controversial UMNO leader despite able to win the UMNO Youth Head position last March. He is so unpopular and highly controversial that during the Bukit Gantang and Bukit Selambau by-elections in April, he was asked not to campaign. Mainstream media, especially TVs (TV 3, NTV 7, TV 9, Astro Awani and Bernama TV) prefer to highlight his deputy, Vice UMNO Youth Head Dato’ Razali Ibrahim’s opinion and statements with regards to UMNO and BN Youth.

Never before in the history of UMNO and BN Youth that the Head was ‘isolated’ from mainstream media.

We at BigDogDotCom hope that PM Najib takes all these arguments into his conisderation. His administration could do without the negative attention and perception.
