People will trust Padu if it’s under digital ministry, says Wan Fayhsal

Opposition MP Wan Ahmad Fayhsal Wan Ahmad Kamal said transferring Padu to the digital ministry would result in more people registering with the database.

KUALA LUMPUR: An opposition MP has urged the government to transfer the central database hub (Padu) to the digital ministry from the economy ministry.

Debating the Cyber Security Bill in the Dewan Rakyat, Wan Ahmad Fayhsal Wan Ahmad Kamal (PN-Machang) claimed the public did not trust economy minister Rafizi Ramli to manage the data on Padu as he was the founder of data analytics firm Invoke.
