MIRI, Sept 24: Telang Usan assemblyman Dennis Ngau described PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s sudden announcement yesterday of having a strong majority to form a new government as “quirky”.
“It was very strange, when there were no political party representatives or leaders whom he claimed supported him seen standing next to him at the sudden press conference (yesterday),” Dennis opined.
He said this when met today after presenting Unit for Other Religions (Unifor) grants to nine places of worship comprising eight churches and a Chinese temple within the Telang Usan consituency.
He highlighted Anwar has previously sparked a series of controversies, and yesterday’s announcement was not something new.
“I believe people don’t care much about yesterday’s announcement. What is crucial is that we rebuild our country’s economy post-Covid-19,” Dennis said, adding politicians must put aside their political interests to rebuild in order to defeat the novel coronavirus.
“I think people are too tired of these kinds of controversies, and thank God, we in Sarawak, the leaders, are very much focused on bringing development to the rakyat,” he added.
Yesterday, Anwar claimed that he possessed ‘strong, convincing and formidable’ support from Members of Parliament to form a government, which in effect means the Perikatan Nasional(PN) government led by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has collapsed. — DayakDaily
