KUALA LUMPUR, February 2 — A daring survey has recently found that a large section of the Malay community disapproves of the Pakatan Harapan (PH) administration.

The survey had polled 2,614 Malay respondents and found some 60 per cent of them “are not happy” with the performance of the Pakatan government.

Those who are found to be not in favor of the new government (PH) believe that non-Muslims are in control of the government with DAP calling the shots, the survey reveals.

The survey was conducted jointly by pollster Ilham Centre and think tank Penang Institute between Oct 24 and Dec 24, 2018.

However, the Prime Minister Dr Mahathir and DAP veteran Lim Kit Siang have rejected the survey`s claim or findings, blaming the opposition party (UMNO) of influencing its results.

“I have never been a puppet yet lah. I talked to many Malays. It is not 60%, there is a small percentage, but not 60%.

“These are assessments made by the opposition as part of their campaign to denigrate us,” Dr Mahathir was quoted saying by local media at the Perdana Leadership Foundation here yesterday (on Friday, Feb 1).

Lim also claimed that the survey cannot be a correct reflection of the situation in the country and disputed claims that non-Muslims are now in control of the government and that DAP is in control of Putrajaya.

 “Although such a survey among non-Muslims was not held, I dare say that if a survey had been conducted, there will not be a single per cent of non-Muslims who would feel happy with the Pakatan Harapan government on the ground that the non-Muslims were now in control of the government and that DAP was calling on the shots in Putrajaya when these suppositions were not true at all,” he said.
