Zaid Quits Cabinet
Zaid Ibrahim has quit the Cabinet! He is probably one of the most principled men in Umno.
DATUK Zaid Ibrahim has tendered his resignation as the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department. He has just submitted his letter to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.
The lawyer turned politician was appointed a minister after the 2008 general election to oversee legal affairs and judicial reform.
Zaid had over the weekend strongly criticised the use of the Internal Security Act (ISA) on three people including a journalist.
He had said that the ISA should be used only against those who truly posed a threat to national security such as terrorists.
