Dato' Sri Mustapa bin Mohamed (Jawi: مصطفى بن محمد; born 25 September 1950), commonly known as Tok Pa among local Kelantanese,[1] is a Malaysian politician who has served as Minister in the Prime Minister's Department for Economic Affairs for third term in the Barisan Nasional (BN) administration under Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob since August 2021. He served his second term in the Perikatan Nasional (PN) administration under former Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin from March 2020 to August 2021 and first term in the BN administration under former Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi from March 2004 to February 2006. He has served as the Member of Parliament (MP) for Jeli since March 2004. He is member of the Malaysian United Indigenous Party (BERSATU), a component party of the Perikatan Nasional (PN) coalition. He became a BERSATU member following his decision to quit United Malays National Organisation (UMNO) on 18 September 2018. [2]

Early education and career[edit]

Mustapa graduated from the University of Melbourne, Australia, with a First Class Honours degree in Economics and from Boston University with a Masters in Economic Development.[3] He is an economist.[4]

Political career[edit]

Mustapa was elected to Parliament in the 1995 election for Jeli constituency, but was defeated for re-election in 1999.[5] He won back the seat in the 2004 election. In 2004 he was also elected to the Kelantan State Legislative Assembly for the Air Lanas seat.[6] He had been slated to become Chief Minister of Kelantan but BN failed to win a majority in the state Assembly.[7] He was re-elected in 2008 election. In 2004 election, he retained his parliamentary seat and again won the state seat of Air Lanas concurrently but with a slim 47 votes.

Mustapa was the former Minister for International Trade and Industry in the BN federal government. Previously, he has also held a number of other government portfolios, including Deputy Finance Minister,[8] Minister for Entrepreneur Development,[9] Minister in the Prime Minister's Department,[10] Minister for Higher Education,[11] and Minister for Agriculture and Agro-based Industry.[12] He was appointed to the Trade portfolio when Najib Razak became Prime Minister in April 2009.[4]

In the aftermath of BN's loss in the 2018 election and UMNO's own party election, Mustapa announced on 18 September 2018 that he has quit UMNO, citing disagreements with the party's current direction.[2] On the 27 October 2018, Mustapa joined BERSATU.[13]

On 4 December 2018, Mustapa was elected chair of the Budget Select Committee.[14]

Personal life[edit]

In January 2021, Mustapa was tested positive for COVID-19.[15] He has recovered and has been discharged from hospital, after being admitted for treatment for nearly two weeks including three days in the intensive care unit (ICU).[16][17]
