PKR man ridicules PAS chief’s remarks on ‘toppling’ govt, tells PN to be effective opposition bloc

Senator Abun Sui Anyit

KUCHING, March 17: Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Sarawak deputy chairman Abun Sui Anyit has ridiculed PAS president Tan Sri Abdul Hadi Awang’s statement on Perikatan Nasional’s (PN) plan to ‘topple’ the unity government.

Abun said PN leaders are seen to be “talking nonsense” and “slanderously” toward the leaders of the unity government, especially Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, and urged them to serve as an effective opposition bloc instead.

“PN chose not to be part of the unity government and failed to play their role as the Opposition. We wonder where the supporters or representatives of the people who would support them (PN) to form the new government come from. Who is the chairman of any political party who would support them? Can elected representatives jump when the anti-hopping law has been enforced?

“Therefore, we hope that PN, as the Opposition, would not confuse the people’s minds with their wish to establish the government. Let’s build Malaysia with a prime minister who is respected by the world and is bringing a lot of foreign investment into the country,” he said.

He also urged them to respect the voters who had chosen them and hoped that they would act as representatives of the people instead of trying to slander the government and its leaders.

It was reported that Abdul Hadi remarked that the PN coalition, which PAS is part of, has the right to plan the toppling of the unity government as this is a democratic country.

The remarks have stirred controversy, with the police announcing that an investigation will be conducted against him.

Meanwhile, Anwar has referred to talks of the unity government falling as “delirious”. — DayakDaily
