This week, we saw Hannah Yeoh putting Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob on blast for taking advantage of his daily press conference to promote his collection on cabinet shelves in the background.
The Defence Minister dismissed the Segambut MP, saying, “She is an Opposition member, so of course she would criticise.” According to him, “This is the MINDEF (Ministry of Defence) cabinet that already exists and will not be removed. I do not know what to put in the back. So, I just left it as it is and did not promote it.”
Having said that, if you watch his daily press conferences throughout this month, the shelves behind him never looks the same. Here are some examples:
Just last week, the 60-year-old politician shared how he was amused with netizens attempting to bid his possessions including helmets, keris, a ball and other home decorations. A few even attempted to “lock” certain outfits that had unique designs.
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with decorating his shelves as how he sees fit. Hopefully the minister’s announcements on SOPs and other important matters won’t cause so much confusion moving forward.
