PM Anwar Denies Reports Of Selling MAHB

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim categorically dismissed recent speculations regarding the sale of Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) during today’s session of the Prime Minister’s Question Time in the Dewan Rakyat.

Responding to queries about foreign entities acquiring MAHB, Anwar clarified that no such discussions had taken place. He emphasized that MAHB’s leadership and operations are wholly Malaysian, with both the president and chief executive officer being Malaysian nationals.

Anwar further elaborated that the involvement of Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP) has resulted in an increase in share ownership held by Khazanah Nasional Bhd and the Employee Provident Fund (EPF), rising from 41 per cent to 70 per cent.

“The question of selling MAHB was never raised. MAHB is managed and operated entirely by Malaysians,” said Anwar, reaffirming the national character of MAHB under its current structure.

The Prime Minister’s remarks aimed to dispel any uncertainties surrounding MAHB’s ownership and operational continuity, underlining the Malaysian government’s commitment to maintaining control and oversight of critical national infrastructure assets.
