Maszlee reveals Rosmah’s ‘Permata’ to be called ‘Genius’

The National Permata Programme (Permata), which was the brainchild of former premier Najib Abdul Razak’s wife Rosmah Mansor, will be rebranded by changing its name to ‘Genius’, said Education Minister Maszlee Malik.

“Even though its functions and roles will remain the same, there are several progrmames which will be improved, in terms of quality.

“The cabinet has made the decision on this rebranding to make it more competitive and motivated,” he was quoted as saying by Berita Harian.

Soon after the May 2018 general election, Rosmah expressed hope that the Pakatan Harapan government would continue with the Permata programme as it was close to her heart.
