GIVE ONE UP. Opposition MP Fong Po Kuan has told Parliament that Abdullah Ahmad Badawi may have too many portfolios to handle. [TheSTAR yesterday, "Fong:PM should give up Internal Security portfolio"].
Abdullah, who is Prime Minister, is also Finance Minister, who is also Minister for Internal Security.
She wants Abdullah to relinquish one and suggests that he gives up the Internal Security portfolio [a "full-time" minister is what the ministry needs to fight rising crime, she argues).
Fong seems to think that the PM is also sitting on too many (24) Cabinet committees.
