Get your act together, it is not about the spoils of victory

May 13, 2018

Rafizi, the rakyat did not vote Pakatan Harapan into power for the same sHit as before – tell that to Anwar Ibrahim, too!

* The storm continues
When you treat the rakyat like fools …
Anwar voices full support for Tun M’s leadership
* Rafizi: Dr M bulldozed minister trio appointment without consulting PKR
* Ambiga flails PKR: Stop your nonsense
* Mat Sabu says PM has final say on Cabinet posts

Former Bar Council president Christopher Leong


PETALING JAYA: The recent open squabble regarding the appointments or non-appointments to the Cabinet is dissappointing and unbecoming, says former Bar Council president Christopher Leong.

“It is disrespectful to the substantial number of Malaysians who had turned out in unprecedented numbers to effect change for a better Malaysia,” he explained in a statement Saturday.

“Please bear in mind that the present and future of Malaysia is not about your political party, it is certainly not about your opinion as to your entitlement to distribution of the spoils of victory.

“Do please remember that at this juncture in the historic moment of our nation it is about creating a better tomorrow for all of us,” he added.

Leong said what’s important is to inspire confidence in Malaysians in the maturity and unity of the government.

“The victory at the polls in GE 14 does not belong to you, it belongs to us the rakyat.

“So stop the bickering and get down to governance, deliverance and excellence. Get your act together,”he said.

Earlier on Saturday, Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan openly slammed PKR’s Rafizi Ramli after he said newly-minted Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad had “bulldozed” his way through the appointments of three Cabinet members from DAP, Parti Amanah Negara and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia.

DAP secretary general Lim Guan Eng was appointed Finance Minister; Amanah president Mohamad Sabu was made Defence Minister; and Prbumi president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin got the Home Minister role.

“Stop this nonsense,” the former Bar president tweeted together with an attachment of the online article that quoted Rafizi.

Rafizi also issued a statement saying the current Cabinet line-up was only tentative and far from complete, and that any decision must have the full consensus of all component party members.
