PN to blame for undermining political stability, sabotaging economy

Former federal minister and Usukan state assemblyman Datuk Salleh Said Keruak blamed the Perikatan Nasional for undermining Malaysia’s political stability and sabotaging the economy.

“If the opposition keeps on talking to the foreign press of their continuous intention to topple or change the current government, it will obviously paint a negative picture about the country that obviously will affect foreign investors confidence and deter foreign investment into the country,” he said on his Facebook page.

“As such the opposition should also take a fair share of the blame on the fall our ringgit and as well as the current state of the economy.

“They should stop using foreign media to undermine political stability and sabotage the economy and then putting the full blame on the current government,” he added.

There has been undemocratic moves attempted thus far by the opposition to wrest power. Fortunately that failed to materialise.

The moves however have somewhat impacted confidence of foreign investors thus far.

Earlier today Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim denied that depreciating value of the ringgit affected investors’ confidence in Malaysia.

PN chairman Tan Sri Mahiaddin Yassin had accused the present administration of being indifferent in handling the economy.
