KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian United Democratic Alliance (MUDA) has decided to act as the third power Opposition and subsequently withdraw its support from the Unity Government.
MUDA President, Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman said, the information about the decision had been handed to the Dewan Rakyat Speaker, Tan Sri Johari Abdul via a letter sent on Sunday.
The Muar Member of Parliament said, the decision to pull out from supporting the Unity Government was made after discussions with the party leaders and admitted that the decision was difficult to be implemented.
“The journey forward is far and all alone but it will be rewarding as Malaysia is always the priority.
“The government’s decision to drop 47 bribery charges against Deputy Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Dr. Ahmad Zahid Hamidi has made it difficult for MUDA to remain in the government,” Syed Saddiq said via a video that was uploaded in the Facebook on Sunday as quoted by Sinar Harian.
According to Syed Saddiq, he is proud to be a Malaysian and he wants to see this country develop by upholding the laws and celebrating diversities.
“I will not allow Malaysia to normalise corruption but retaining the principles,” said the former Minister of Youths and Sports.
He added, MUDA will focus as the third power in the Opposition block and becomes the voice of the people and plays the role of check and balance.
“MUDA will support all institutional reforms’ efforts and the people’s issues. This was not the first time I made the decision based on principles as in 2020 when the “Langkah Sheraton” happened, I had been offered a minister post, GLC chairman and I rejected (even though) I was being threatened but I fought back because I want to build Malaysia with good moral and integrity,” he reiterated.
On another development, MUDA on Sunday afternoon issued a statement stating the party believes that the national legal institution has been marred and the government seems to normalise the bribery culture.
The statement also elaborated that the reformation promises given before the general elections have been ignored by giving reasons that the government is still new. –Malaysia World News.
