KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 6 – Kedah Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Sanusi Mohd Nor’s admission that efforts were being made to “change” the current Federal Government smacks of treason, says Pakatan Harapan’s Wanita Chief Aiman Athirah Sabu.
“Does he not know that the present Unity Government was formed following the advice, decree of the King? Is he agreeing to commit treason against the King’s advice and decree?” Aiman asked in a statement issued Thursday evening.
Expressing shock over the speech of Sanusi, who is also PAS Elections Director General, Aiman, a former PAS party member, said the attitude of current PAS leaders were unbecoming.
“While the government led by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is working around the clock to stabilise the government for the well being of the country and her people, there are still some leaders who are aiming for a repeat of the Sheraton move made in early 2020.
“Isn’t Sanusi aware that the country needs political stability to recover from its prevailing economy? Right now, the world, including Malaysia, is potentially facing a year of recession as economic experts around the world are expecting.
“The country has regressed with instability in the government the last three years following the Sheraton Move, where we have had three different prime ministers during the period. As a former PAS member, I would like to appeal to Sanusi to forget about power-crazed politics for a while and instead to focus on developing the three states administered by PAS, namely Kedah, Kelantan and Terengganu.”
Aiman also called on Sanusi to help the Malay Muslims, who formed the majority in the three states, and make real efforts to bring them out of the cycle of poverty.
At the Federal level, support will continue to be provided to these states as seen by the help given by the prime minister and the deputy prime minister during the recent floods faced by Kelantan, she said.
She also called on Sanusi to wait for another five years to make any change in government, where “we can fight it out fairly.”
