Muhyiddin: “Anwar too busy suppressing his political opponents to address the people’s burdens”
PERIKATAN Nasional (PN) chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has hit out at Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim whom he said seems to care more about subduing his political opponents rather than addressing more pressing issues faced by the people.
(Focus Malaysia) – In a Facebook post, the former prime minister said on Monday (Jan 22) the Ringgit had fallen to its lowest point in 26 years at 4.7280/7335 against the US dollar.
Meanwhile, the country’s GDP grew only 3.8% according to advanced estimates released by the Department of Statistics Malaysia (DOSM) last week, missing its projection of 4–5%.
According to Muhyiddin, Malaysia’s total trade also faced continuous decline in December last year, marking the 10th consecutive month of downturn since March 2023 while total trade had fallen by 4.3% to RM225.1 bil as compared to the previous year’s RM231 bil.
“These are all the realities faced by the people. It has been more than a year since the Madani government took over the federal administration and the people’s lives are becoming more difficult,” the Pagoh MP remarked.
“Until now I have yet to see the prime minister being capable of providing a comprehensive solution to the increasingly acute problems faced by the people.
“He seems to be more focused on suppressing his political rivals than solving the people’s issues.”
