(MMO) – The Malay community agrees with the issues regularly raised by opposition parties but do not voice their support as they are unconvinced that there is a credible alternative to the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN), said PKR’s Rafizi Ramli.
The Pandan MP added that opposition parties were to blame for their own failure to win over an electorate that was otherwise sympathetic to their cause.
“We are responsible for the fact that they still vote for BN despite understanding all these issues,” he said at the Save Malaysia round table here today.
“The more we talk down to them, the more they would not trust us,” he added.
He said that opposition leaders must not be “opportunistic” and “condescending” in speaking to Malay voters, especially those in the rural heart-lands where BN retains stronger support.
