*_PH manifesto:_* To reduce the power of the PM to influence the appointment of key officials to the EC, MACC, Malaysian Human Rights Commission and Judicial Appointment Commission, such appointments must be affirmed by the relevant Parliament Select Committtees.

Incidentally, Shukri is one those that were also involved in the Teoh Beng Hock's case.
