“Uncivilised politics”: Perak PAS chief slams Pakatan for treatment of Opposition

PAKATAN Harapan is trying to revive uncivilised politics, as evident in the ever-changing total figure mentioned in the documents handed to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and police, claimed Perak PAS commissioner Razman Zakaria.

According to the Perak opposition leader, this is an act to pressure enforcement agencies to accept accusations and find anything that can be deemed “incorrect”.

“Pakatan Harapan is trying to revive uncivilised politics that have long been forgotten by the people. Draconian politics are no longer relevant in the country,” the Gunung Semanggol assemblyman said in a statement today (March 9).

“The Federal Government should instead be more mature and focus on developing the country.”

Razman was referring to reports that the anti-corruption watchdog is investigating allegations that chosen contractors had deposited RM300 mil into the Bersatu party account as funds before the 15th general election (GE15).

“Arresting opposition leaders and subjecting them to trumped-up charges is not civilised politics, with such acts going against basic human rights,” he stated.

“The plot of the drama could be seen in the statements by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim from the day he took office.

“This goes against the slogans uttered by Pakatan when it was the Opposition. His statements as Prime Minister and Finance Minister seem to focus on dismantling the hard work of the previous government.”

Razman further accused the PH government of acting like the opposition despite being in power, which he said can lead to “unstable politics”.

Describing the PH coalition as a “modern barbarian” trying to suppress freedom of speech, he claimed that racial comments against the Malay and Muslim community in the nation are being protected while those who criticise the government are being imprisoned.

“Suppressing the people’s voice will only increase the political temperature of the country,” he added.

Earlier today, Perikatan Nasional (PN) chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin been summoned to MACC headquarters in Putrajaya earlier to give evidence believed to be related to the case of misappropriation of government funds or the Jana Wibawa programme. – March 9, 2023
