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 Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture for the second term in the Barisan Nasional (BN) administration under Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob since August 2021. She served her first term in the Perikatan Nasional (PN) administration under former Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin from March 2020 to August 2021 and Member of Parliament (MP) for Batang Sadong since March 2008. [1] She served as Minister in the Prime Minister's Department and Minister of Plantation Industries and Commodities in the BN administration under former Prime Minister Najib Razak from May 2013 to May 2018.

Political career[edit]

Nancy was elected to Parliament in the 2008 Malaysian general election for the rural conservative seat of Batang Sadong, in southern Sarawak state.[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]

Nancy was born on 5 August 1961 in Kuching, Sarawak to Bibi McPherson and Shukri Mahidi.[5][6] 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.[7] Nancy is the tenth of eleven siblings.[5]


In November 2013, she created a controversy after being appointed Minister in the Najib Razak cabinet, saying 'Bumiputera will steal if 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 Chinese and Indian minority communities.[8] Nancy has since dismissed the said remark on several occasions.[9][10]
