“Muhyiddin is part of the problem, not the solution”

It was certainly not Anwar or the unity government that was responsible for the creation of the country’s whopping RM1.5 trillion debt.

(Focus Malaysia) – I DON’T expect Perikatan Nasional (PN) chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin to say anything worthwhile or good about the few-months-old unity government helmed by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

He said recently that the unity government is hopeless, lacks direction and mostly importantly has no answer of the decline of the value of the ringgit, the state of the economy and the sad plight of the B40 community.

Muhyiddin also claimed that it was Anwar’s inability to address these – and other issues – that had given rise to instability in the country.

I don’t think that Anwar has downplayed the economic and financial problems of the country. He might be in power for a for few months, but he is certainly not resting on his laurels.

There is constant and relentless search for enduring political, economic and political stability.

Muhyiddin might criticise the Anwar administration but he must also realise at the same time that his PN coalition is the major source of instability in the present government.

Muhyiddin must also realise that he cannot hide his hands behind his back after throwing the stones at the unity government.

The infamous Sheraton Move not only dethroned the legitimate Pakatan Harapan government but provided propitious circumstances for the PN government to amass wealth under the cruel conditions the COVID-19 pandemic.

In fact, this illegal generation of wealth is presently subject to investigation by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

The PN government under Muhyiddin could not last for more than two years.

The subsequent government under Barisan Nasional (BN) merely compounded the economic and social problems of the country.

The problems faced by the unity government is not the doing of Anwar’s leadership; rather, it was the spillover from the previous PN and BN governments.

What Anwar is trying to do is to address the myriad economic and social problems left behind by the present “heroes” in the PN coalition headed by none other than Muhyiddin.
