PETALING JAYA: The unity government has proven its naysayers wrong and shown that it can unite for the people despite claims the Anwar Ibrahim-led administration would be unstable, says government spokesman Fahmi Fadzil.

The communications minister said Anwar’s government had been able to come up with several “historic” policies in the past year governing the country, including the Madani economic framework, progressive wage policy and energy transition roadmap, among others.

These policies, he said, were thanks to the strength and stability of the unity government, which brought together previously rival coalitions such as Pakatan Harapan and Barisan Nasional.

“In this past year, certain quarters tried to play up all kinds of made-up stories and myths, including that the Madani government would not be stable. That there would be infighting.

“But during this year, the Madani government has proven that we can unite in carrying out our duties and focusing on our work to help the rakyat.

“We have started well. God-willing, this journey will continue. May 2024 be better for all of us,” he said in a posting on X, formerly Twitter.

Following the formation of the unity government, Bersatu’s Wan Saiful Wan Jan claimed that the administration was unstable and could be threatened by BN at any time.

The Tasek Gelugor MP said the Perikatan Nasional government that was led by the coalition’s chairman Muhyiddin Yassin, and made up of PN and BN ministers led by then Umno vice-president Ismail Sabri Yaakob, faced the same predicament.

Speculation of a plot to topple Anwar as prime minister around May prompted Johor’s Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar to express concern over the apparent political instability, saying “enough is enough” and that Malaysia’s economic recovery must be the priority. - FMT
