Dennis Ignatius draws flak with his ‘vote for PN to save PH’ call

FORMER diplomat Dennis Ignatius is attracting a lot of negative comments on the X platform after he suggested that voting for Perikatan Nasional (PN) in the Kuala Kubu Bahru (KKB) by-election on May 11 will ‘save the Pakatan Harapan (PH)’.

Netizens are ganging up to tell him they will not follow his instructions because he is ‘blinded’ in his judgement over the reign of the PH.

He wrote: “VOTE PN TO SAVE PH. I hope the voters of KKB will send a strong message to PMX that his performance thus far has been terribly disappointing. Perhaps then they might all come to their senses and be the government they promised to be.”

Later, in a reply to his post, he added: “It’s a by-election. A vote for PN will be a kick in the b#tt for PH; nothing more.”

His post drew several responses from his followers, with some saying they are now disappointed by his latest post against the PH or that he is encouraging PN to continue playing out the 3R issues to the detriment of stability in the country.

Meanwhile, users are saying PH or DAP should not be punished for not being accepted yet by Malay-Muslim voters or that PH needs a vote of confidence in the wake of a rise in right-wing extremism in the country.

Yesterday (April 27), Bersatu chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said that the by-election (PRK) of the Kuala Kubu Bharu state legislative assembly (DUN) will be a referendum against the government headed by Prime Minister (PM) Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

The unity government is ‘burdened’ with current issues that are seen as burdening the people, stressed the former premier who is also the PN chairman Muhyiddin.

He said this is a chance for the public to voice their views, which he describes as feelings of dissatisfaction, by giving votes to PN candidate Khairul Azhari Saut. – April 28, 2024
