Zeti sharp as ever, tells reporter she will not answer political questions

'Council of elders' member Zeti Akhtar Aziz said she will not entertain political questions from the press following the council's first meeting.

The former Bank Negara Malaysia governor said she will only be involved from the economic perspective because that's what the people care about the most.

The advisory council – dubbed the “Council of Elders” – is currently looking into comprehensive ways of improving the people's buying power and not just from a piecemeal perspective, she said after meeting 180 fund managers at Bank Negara today.
