Nancy binti Shukri (Jawi: ننسي بنت شكري; born 5 August 1961) is a Malaysian politician from the Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB), a component party of the Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS). She has served as the Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture in the Perikatan Nasional (PN) administration led by Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin since March 2020 and Member of Parliament (MP) for Batang Sadong since March 2008. She served as the Minister in the Prime Minister's Department and Minister of Plantation Industries and Commodities in the Barisan Nasional (BN) administration led by former Prime Minister Najib Razak from May 2013 to the power loss of BN in the 2018 general election in May 2018.[1]

Political career[edit]

Nancy was elected to parliament in the 2008 Malaysian general election for the conservative rural seat of Batang Sadong.[2][3]

After successfully defending her seat in the 2013 Malaysian general election, Nancy was appointed as Minister in the Prime Minister's Department in the new Cabinet of Malaysia announced by then Prime Minister of Malaysia, Najib Razak.[4]

Personal life[edit]

She was born on 5 August 1961 in Kuching, Sarawak to Bibi McPherson and Shukri Mahidi.[5] She has Malay and Melanau ancestry on her father's side while her mother has Scottish, Iban and Chinese ancestry. She is married with three children and currently living in Kuching, Sarawak.[6] Nancy is the tenth of eleven siblings.[5]


In November 2013, she created a controversy when she became a Minister in the Najib Razak cabinet, saying "Bumiputera will steal if they left unaided.". She said it in her defence of the government’s recent move to reintroduce a race-preferential economic policy that has drawn the ire of Malaysia’s minority Chinese and Indian communities.[7]
