KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 12 (Bernama) — Tan Sri Adenan Satem, who has been named successor to Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud as Sarawak chief minister, has been described as the most ideal choice as he has enormous experience in administration at both state and federal levels.

Barisan Nasional (BN) party leaders said Adenan would be capable of fostering closer ties between Sarawak and the federal government.

Former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said he was confident Adenan would use his vast experience in the state and federal governments to carry out his new duties well.

Adenan, who is Sarawak’s Minister in the Chief Minister’s Office and Special Functions Minister, celebrated his 70th birthday on Jan 27, and has a colourful background.

He had worked as a journalist, teacher as well as legal counsel and was appointed a federal minister in 2004, as natural resources and environment minister.

Dr Mahathir also advised the other candidates who were not selected to fill the post to continue being loyal to the new chief minister.

“Do not fight with one another or the party may be weakened, which would benefit no one,” he told reporters after opening a seminar and forum here today.

He was commenting on Abdul Taib’s resignation as Sarawak chief minister on Feb 28, and naming Adenan as his successor.

On rumours that Abdul Taib would take over the post of Yang Dipertua Negeri of Sarawak, Dr Mahathir said: “There is no better qualified person than (Abdul) Taib for the post.”

In KOTA KINABALU, Sabah Chief Minster Datuk Seri Musa Aman congratulated Adenan and expressed confidence that with Adenan s vast experience, Sarawak would continue to progress and prosper, bringing further development to the state.

At the 10th state election in April 2011, he retained the Tanjung Datu seat, this time beating Gilbert Asson ak Kulong (Independent) by a majority of 3,216 votes.

Adenan’s ministry positions were Sarawak Assistant Minister of Land Development (July 11, 1985), Sarawak Minister of Land Development (March 12, 1987), Sarawak Minister of Social Development (Sept 10, 1992), Sarawak Minister of Agriculture and Food Industries (Jan 1, 1998), member of Sarawak State Cabinet (Sept 28, 2001), Federal Minister of Natural Resources and Environment (March 30, 2004), Special Advisor in the Sarawak Chief Minister’s Office (April 2, 2010 – June 6, 2011) and Sarawak Minister of Special Functions (Sept 30 2011 till now).

The incoming chief minister, who is Malay, is Tanjung Datu state assemblyman and was formerly the Batang Sadong member of parliament.

Adenan, from Kuching, is Parti Pesaka Bumiputra Bersatu (PBB) information chief.

Born on Jan 27, 1944, he is married to Puan Sri Jamilah Anu. The couple has a son and two daughters.
