A former senior lecturer at the International Islamic University of Malaysia (IIUM) has been recommended for the post of the university’s president to replace Education Minister Maszlee Malik, whose appointment was slammed over conflict of interest.

Dr Mohd Daud Bakar, who is also an expert in Islamic banking and finance, is rumoured to be Maszlee’s replacement after the minister tendered his resignation in November, said two sources with knowledge of the appointment.
