Today, the Global Movement of Moderates Foundation (GMMF) announces the appointment of Nasharudin Mat Isa as its new Chief Executive Officer, effective November 1 2015.
Nasharudin Mat Isa who was a former Deputy President of PAS from 2005-2011, replaces Saifuddin Abdullah who recently joined the opposition party, PKR.
Congratulations, Uncle Nasha!
And I also want to congratulate PM Najib who has been making good moves lately.
Earlier the Prime Minister appointed Dato’ Asyraf Wajdi Dusuki as the Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s office and appointed Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali as the new Attorney General to replace Abdul Ghani Patail and now he appointed Nasharudin Mat Isa, a much more capable candidate for the job to replace Saifuddin Abdullah as the CEO of GMMF.
These actions prove that PM Najib does not believe in ‘asabiyyah’ for he does not mind to appoint someone from PAS and not from UMNO to led such an important organisation as GMMF.
As a Muslim country, GMMF must promote moderation in terms of Islam or wasatiyyah and not to promote liberalism; hence GMMF should be lead by a capable person like Nasharudin Mat Isa who understands the meaning of ‘moderate’ in terms of Islam.
I hope PM Najib can make more good moves in the future for the betterment of our country.
