He said in the event if he is not appointed, he said there are many other responsibilities that he can fulfill such as backbencher chairman and his own parliamentary constituency.

Tajuddin, who was the former Prasarana non-executive chairman, said until now he has not been informed whether he is being appointed as Malaysian envoy in Indonesia or whether his name is in the list.

On Tuesday (July 13), Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah presented letters of appointment to four new Malaysian heads of missions at Istana Negara here.

The newly-appointed heads of missions were Malaysian Ambassador to South Korea Datuk Lim Jay Jin, Malaysian Ambassador to Japan Shahril Effendi Abd Ghany, Malaysian Ambassador to Saudi Arabia Datuk Wan Zaidi Wan Abdullah and Malaysian Ambassador to Iran Khairi Omar.

Also present were Deputy Foreign Minister Datuk Kamarudin Jaffar and Foreign Ministry secretary-general Datuk Amran Mohamed Zin.

Tajuddin was not mentioned in the report.
