Adenan should not hold both the Chief Minister and the Finance Minister posts.
It is never a healthy democratic practice to have both the Chief Minister post and finance minister post held by ONE single person. The role of a finance minister is always to provide a check and control within the cabinet on the spending by the cabinet. With the Chief Minister post and finance minister post held by one person, such internal control mechanism is removed.
The most obvious example of such unhealthy practice causing damage to the country is Najib who holds both the Prime Minister post and the Finance Minister post.
To have one person holding both the portfolios is to open oneself to abuse of the power and even corruption.
It is even worst in the case of Adenan because he is not only holding both the Chief Minister and Finance Minister posts but he is also holding the First Resource Planning and Environment Minister position (who controls the forest and land resources, the two largest and richest natural resources of the State).
All the 3 most powerful ministries are held by ONE person, Adenan. This is surely not what right-thinking Sarawakians want to see.
If Adenan truly wants to implement a more transparent system in his administration, he should not be holding all these 3 most power portfolio.
