PN leaders deny 'Dubai Move' in the works, say govt diverting attention


Perikatan Nasional leaders have denied the claim by Community Communications Department (J-Kom) deputy director-general Ismail Yusop that a new plot is in the works to topple the current prime minister and the government.

Machang MP Wan Ahmad Fayhsal Wan Kamal told news portal Free Malaysia Today that J-Kom was creating diversions and using psychological warfare in claiming that PN politicians and government officials had met in Dubai to discuss topping the government of Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim.

Meanwhile, PAS deputy president Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man said Ismail’s claim was an attempt to deceive the people.

He said that this appeared to be a strategy to draw the rakyat’s attention from current issues, which he claimed include “the J-Kom issue, local elections, or statements from DAP leaders causing public concern.”

“The government should focus on issues that concern the people, such as the flood problems that people are facing, the cost of living, and so on,” Tuan Ibrahim said, going on to call for privacy of opposition leaders who went on holiday with their family members.

This came after Ismail alleged that the movement arose during the vacation by PN leaders, as well as government officials, to the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

He claimed that a meeting took place during the visit to assign specific tasks to “agents” responsible for identifying MPs who might switch their support to the opposition with inducements.

“It has become public knowledge in the past day or two about the Dubai holiday by PN leaders. Followed by the presence of several other leaders associated with groups dissatisfied with the leadership style of Anwar and the government.

“It is rumoured that the ‘Dubai Move’ was formulated with assignments given to a person in charge tasked to meet, negotiate, and make offers to those identified as potential supporters who may switch to the opposition.

“It is said that there are spokespersons with access to the leadership on the opposition side, who are roaming throughout the country, including in Sabah and Sarawak, trying to convince that the Madani government will topple in early 2024, with a date and deadline given,” Ismail told Berita Harian.

Other influential veteran political figures - some with the title “Tun” - are allegedly involved, a former prime minister and a former finance minister are using local and foreign sources to overthrow the Anwar administration, he added.

Leaving it up to authorities

Ismail told Berita Harian that he obtained information about the latest movement to topple the government from various sources, not just one party.

While having admitted to having details of senior politicians both in the opposition and the government who are involved in the “Dubai Move”, Ismail declined to comment further.

“I think as someone who supports Anwar and the Madani government, I am responsible for giving a perspective. I hope it can not only enlighten but also help anyone reading the message.

“I will trust the security forces, higher authorities have more information and know (who is involved in the Dubai Move). I don't think I want to take responsibility for disclosing anyone’s name, but ‘siapa makan cili, dia rasa pedas’,” he said.

Ahmad Maslan

Meanwhile, Works deputy minister Ahmad Maslan said that if any of the 30 BN MPs in government intended to hop parties, they are liable to pay a fine of RM100 million.

“Which MP has that kind of money?” he questioned today in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter.

“However, even if 30 (BN) MPs leave, the government will remain (with a simple majority) of 122. The rakyat wants stability and a strengthened economy,” he added. - Mkini
