Put politics aside lah!
Can we just put politics aside? The Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Ismail Sabri Yaacob has asked Datuk Mokzani Mahathir to step down as Sepang International Circuit chairman. Mokzani may have quit as Umno member and the SIC post is a government appointment but it is more important whether he has done a good job. The Formula One is 10 years old and we know he has done well. Mokzani doesn't even get paid. Despite the glamour surrounding F1, it is not an easy job, especially now with Singapore hosting it for the first time. Sports and politics should never mixed. Mokzani has not even join another political party. In Penang, many of the committee members involved in Chingay and Dragon Boat come from different political parties. Gerakan, MCA or DAP, so what? It's no big deal as they merely share the same passion and want to make Penang shine. It's the same with FI.Please put politics aside lah.
