Opposition eroding unity government’s credibility?
The opposition is attempting to erode the credibility of the unity government.
That is crystal clear with the latest allegations from Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainuddin who heads Perikatan Nasional (PN) in parliament.
Despite being a unity government that is made up of PH, BN, GPS, GRS, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has set his sight on doing what is morally right. Hence, institutional reform is part of the portfolio held by Minister in Prime Minister’s Department, Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said.
Hamzah alleged that the government is blackmailing opposition lawmakers for support in the august house.
He also claimed that his party is gathering evidence.
This was refuted by Home Minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail.
Saifuddin pointed out that they were no reports lodged to the relevant authorities over the alleged offence.
Both are from Bersatu, the Umno splinter party that is led Tan Sri Mahiaddin Yassin.
These are issues raised by cybertroopers aligned to PN.
Hence it is vital for the government to counter the narratives and implement confidence building measures for the people.
Action speaks louder than words. Cybertroopers can spread whatever narratives that their political masters claim but nothing beats the action on the ground.
The words and actions of the government must be synchronised so that the confidence of people in the government is maintained.
Ultimately all this boils down to the next general election and hopes that there would not be a change in who leads the government.
Otherwise reform efforts undertaken by Anwar – be it on the subsidies or taxes would be meaningless.
