Pejuang info chief: Ask Hamzah about efforts to lobby Dr M


Those denying that Bersatu is courting former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad need to only consult the party's secretary-general Hamzah Zainudin, said Pejuang pro-tem information chief Ulya Aqamah Husamudin.

He said this in response to Bersatu information chief Wan Saiful Wan Jan who denied that the party was making offers to Mahathir, who is Pejuang's adviser.

Mahathir had set up Pejuang after being expelled from Bersatu, which he also founded and had served as its chairperson.

"The fact is that there are still those who are trying to convince us to return to Bersatu. Just ask Hamzah who is among those who had tried to convince Mahathir to return to Bersatu.

"But our principles are not for sale. It is impossible for us to buy what is said by those who had betrayed the people's mandate," Ulya Aqamah said in a statement.

He added that Wan Saiful's denial that Bersatu had also made offers to keep leaders in the party also ran contrary to the leaked audio recording which purportedly showed Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin offering positions in exchange for support.

Wan Saiful had dismissed Mahathir's claim of offers as a ploy and said Pejuang should instead focus on what it can offer.

Ulya Aqamah said Pejuang, in contrast to Bersatu, stuck to what it preached.

"We reject corruption, abuse of power and refuse to work with those who betrayed the people's mandate.

"We stick to our principles even if it meant that we lose all positions and privileges," he said.

He added that Wan Saiful should instead focus on the Perikatan Nasional government's failure in governance.

"They range from the uncontrollable rise of Covid-19 cases to political interference in the police force as well as the people's socio-economic problems due to an incompetent government," he said. - Mkini
