Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob has been given an ultimatum to stop testing the patience of the National Association (PN) through the division of positions in government-related companies (GLC) that are biased towards Umno and Barisan Nasional (BN).
The head of Subang Bersatu Fleet, Hazrilhafizi Mohayan, said many of the quotas for GLC positions and government-linked investment companies (GLICs) controlled by Umno and BN, whose positions were previously held by PN, were intentionally left vacant or subtly ‘stolen’ in an attempt to undermine cooperation in government.
“Don’t be rude and rude to the President of the PN and deliberately test the patience of the members of the PN below. “Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri needs to realize beforehand that it was the PN component that appointed him PM and not his own party who saw him as a nuisance to the UMNO President,” he said in a statement today.
Explaining this, Hazrilhafizi said, Bersatu never approved the division of positions to the UMNO-BN faction solely to gain support for Ismail Sabri in the upcoming elections.
“The appointment was previously agreed to support Ismail Sabri as PM through an MoU signed by stakeholders in forming the current government.
“Now people see him as a shadow PM or a puppet controlled by a court group that the people reject,” he said.
Hazrilhafizi added that UMNO and BN did not respect the will of the people when they were greedy to seek funds for party and general elections.
“I and other members will urge PN members who are ministers or within the ministry to review the GLC and GLIC positions held by the UMNO-BN faction. If it is necessary to be evicted or vacated, we as members urge that it be done immediately.
“Both, our focus on the 2023 State Budget is to help the people and restore the national economy, not to the UMNO-BN faction or the regional elections of its party.
“If it appears that the proposed budget will focus on granting allocations to the UMNO-BN faction, we affirm that it was rejected by parliamentarians from the PN,” he said. – Malaysiapost
