Does this mean that before this, the decision to award tenders was the PM’s?
From the Malaysian Chronicle, dateline 2013-04-03:
Decisions on tender awards for upstream and downstream activities in the oil and gas sector are left in Petronas’ (Petroliam Nasional Bhd) hands, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
The government does not want to have a say in the decision-making process.
“A few months ago, I decided that all the tenders be decided by the board’s wisdom … I don’t want to make the decision,” Najib said during a townhall session with Petronas staff yesterday.
