Should Syed Saddiq vacate his MP post since he is now in opposition?

MUDA president Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman has steered his party into the opposition, attacking Pakatan Harapan (PH) on several fronts and preparing to contest against the ruling coalition in the next state elections.

However, Twitter users are urging the MUDA chief to quit as an MP and to prove that the ‘raykat’ supports them.

The tweet garnered 125,000 views and loads of comments but Twitter users are arguing with the original poster about the validity of his opinion.

“Again, I’m not saying there is technically anything wrong with them keeping their seats. For me, it’s more a question of sincerity. If you’ve decided (or forced) to be an opp party, be honest with yourself about whether your mandate would exist if not for PH, and prove it,” added the user.

Should Saddiq resign as an MP since he was elected with the backing of PH? That was the question after the latter started to attack PH openly.

Meanwhile, user @taufiqmarshal said:

The latter is saying that PH was elected on a different platform and campaign than the Barisan Nasional (BN) but later formed a coalition with the UMNO-BN to gain power.

Moreover, user @nuar_lee added:

Nevertheless, user @dashrox1 is of the opinion that it will be tough for PH-BN to beat Syed Saddiq. – July 1, 2023
