A year after the “Sheraton Move” that triggered a change in government, two leaders said that the current “Malay-Muslim Government” is getting messier each day due to its own doing.

Reflecting on the past year, Warisan President Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal and MUDA Malaysia Chief Syed Saddiq Abdul Rahman said that the year-old “backdoor” government formed by PPBM, UMNO and PAS has no agenda or achievements to be proud of that has benefited the people.

“These three parties told the people that a Malay-Muslim government was needed to look after them, but unfortunately, it is a whole year later and the people are still not better off,” they said in a statement together on Tuesday.

“Under this “Malay-Muslim government”, the unemployment rate has increased to 4.8 per cent or 772,900 people, as of December last year, and more than 30,000 businesses have shuttered since the movement control order (MCO) was implemented a year ago.”

“Of that, 9,000 were small to medium enterprises. Some manufacturers have even moved to neighbouring countries, a testament to the fact that the Perikatan Nasional government is only a cosmetic brand.”

They added that the “Malay-Muslim government” has also failed to keep its promise to give laptops to some 150,000 students as declared in the Budget, resulting in the B40 group reaching out to the Opposition for help to get gadgets for their kids.

Shafie and Saddiq said that the PN’s self-declaration that it could bring economic stability was far from the truth.

“They have also been plagued mutual suspicion and mistrust, proven from a series of changes in state leadership, party hopping and during the Sabah state election.”

“As a result of the constant politicking by the “Malay-Muslim government”, people are suffering.”

“A government built on betrayal will also collapse and disintegrate because of betrayals,” they said.

Shafie, who is Semporna Member of Parliament and Syed Saddiq, who is also Muar Member of Parliament, said that they hoped the politicians realise in hindsight that power and position will not lead to success in government.

Now that they are part of the Opposition, the two leaders said that their focus was to continue being a voice for the people.

“Even though power has shifted, it is not an excuse for us to sit back and point fingers and blame everything on the government of the day. The ‘Sheraton Move’ did not and will not erase our resolve and effort towards building the nation,” they said.
