Maszlee: Dr Mahathir's assessment of cabinet 'fair'

Education Minister Maszlee Malik today said he accepted Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad's one-year assessment of the cabinet, calling it "fair".

This was after Mahathir gave the cabinet five out of 10 marks, or 50 percent, equivalent to a borderline pass in Malaysian examinations.

"As a prime minister who has long experience in the administration, I think the prime minister knows what score to give, especially when it is on the national administration.

"Such performance for the first year, I would consider it to be quite a fair assessment from someone who has such a long experience in government," he told journalists after an Education Ministry staff gathering in Putrajaya on Tuesday.
