PETALING JAYA: Sports Commissioner Suhardi Alias ​​has criticized Malaysia’s bold proposal to rescue the Commonwealth Games by hosting the 2026 Games at short notice.

He said the Olympic Council of Malaysia’s (OCM) plan was shocking, financially risky and short-sighted.

Suhardi, the first Malaysian top civil servant to oppose the move led by OCM President Norza Zakaria, said he was against wasting public funds for unsound purposes.
