|YB Rohani Karim|
Mengikut lapuran "Local daily The Star reported that Shahrizat will likely be appointed the prime minister’s special adviser on women affairs. The yet-to-be announced appointment will also confer Shahrizat full ministerial status and powers, allowing her the avenue to return to the corridors of power.
Shahrizat had remained a Cabinet member and had headed the women, family and community development ministry previously courtesy of her appointment to Parliament's upper house despite losing in the March 2008 general election. According to Nazri, the ex-Lembah Pantai MP's experience was needed to help Rohani run a ministry that is accustomed to “the peninsula (Malaysian) way of doing things”.
Kenyataan untuk menghalalkan tindakan Najib melantik Sharizat Jalil sebagai penasihat Khas PM dalam hal ehwal wanita dilihat memperkecil-kecilkan kewibawaan Menteri Pembangunan Wanita, Keluarga dan Masyarakat, Datuk Rohani Abdul Karim yang mewakili pengundi Sarawak.
Kata Nazri “Rohani is from Sarawak. Probably her focus of work does not cover many of the peninsula aspects. The ministry is used to the management done by those from the peninsula”. Memandangkan Rohani dari Sarawak konon beliau tidak memahami orang-orang semenanjung.
Jika begini tanggapannya mengapa Rohani dilantik menjadi menteri? Apakah kerana untuk please pengundi Serawak sahaja?
"Asked if the move could tarnish Najib's reform credentials, Nazri dismissed the idea and said political sensitivity was no longer and issue since the 13th general election is already over. “Now is already after the elections. Before it was sensitive because of the general election. Now such sensitivity should not be given priority. What is important is that the ministry must be run properly”. Nampak sangat selepas pilihanraya mereka bebas melakukan apa sahaja kerana 2018 dilihat lambat lagi. Ingatlah rakyat tidak mudah lupa. Sebelum pilihanraya rakyat ditatang selepas pilihanraya rakyat ditendang.
Konklusinya bukan kerana Rohani tidak berwibawa tetapi untuk menghalalkan pelantikan Sharizat Jalil maka terpaksa korbankan kredibiliti Rohani.
