Rafidah's Ministry To Explain AP Issue In Booklet

Extracted from BERNAMA

KUALA KANGSAR, July 17 (Bernama) -- The International Trade and Industry Ministry will publish a booklet to put an end to the controversy surrounding the issuance of permits to import vehicles or APs.

Minister Datuk Seri Rafidah Aziz said that she hoped the booklet would give a clear explanation to the people pertaining to the issue.

"I have given explanations (on the APs). I am already tired of answering questions about it which are all not right (not accepted). I have done it in Parliament and during the last Umno assembly.

"I hope the explanation through the booklet will be accepted by all parties without prejudice," she said during a function at the Sungai Perak Safari Resort here Monday where nine people received accolades for their contribution to the people in the Kuala Kangsar Parliamentary constituency while 53 school students received cash aid of RM100 each.

Rafidah, who is the Member of Parliament for Kuala Kangsar, said she hoped the spat between the current leadership and former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad would not prolong as the government had answered all questions that had been raised.

"Fortunately, during my visits overseas like to Europe and South Korea recently, no one asked about the spat. They did not ask because they are business-minded and do not care much on political affairs in the country," she said.
