“MUDA to be opposition in Penang if it wins any of the 3 contested seats,” says Syed Saddiq
(Focus Malaysia) – MUDA intends to take on the role of the opposition in the Penang state legislative assembly if the party wins any of the three contested seats in Penang in the state election this Saturday (Aug 12), said party president Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman.
“After the elections, in Penang, it is most likely that PH-BN will win with a comfortable majority so in that position, in my opinion I will still have to bring this up to the central executive committee, we will be the people’s opposition to be the check and balance.
“We want to be the voice of conscience, the proper alternative and proper voice of the people.
“In the event if there is a hung state legislative assembly, Muda’s priority will be the coalition that promotes multiculturalism, diversity, moderation and reform-centred policies.
“Our party will not blindly support any coalition as Muda’s ultimate priority is policy concessions. Muda’s focus is to be the people’s voice,” he told reporters after a Muda ceramah at Pantai Jerejak last night (Aug 8).
