PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar yesterday confirmed that she was no longer serving as the senior economic and finance adviser to Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim.
In a statement, Nurul said she had now joined the finance minister's special advisory body, chaired by Mohd Hassan Marican.
"Mohd Hassan Marican has invited me to join the special advisory body to help its efforts to strengthen the economy and the people. I humbly accept this responsibility.
"With this new role, I no longer serve as a senior economic and finance adviser to the prime minister. I appreciate every opportunity to contribute to the country in order to create a better future for Malaysia," she said.
The former Permatang Pauh MP said she hoped that the services rendered under her new role would be beneficial to the country.
"Malaysians as a whole expect a bright future and solid unity led by the prime minister together with the government.
"Thank you to the entire committee. Let's all contribute in any capacity for the sake of our country," she said.
Nurul, the eldest daughter of Anwar and Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, said last month in an interview with a local daily that she had been appointed as a senior economic and finance adviser to the prime minister effective Jan 3.
