PETALING JAYA: Angkatan Amanah Merdeka (Amanah) president Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah unveiled his team that included former MCA president Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat, ex-MIC deputy president Datuk S. Subramaniam and former Culture, Arts and Tourism Minister Tan Sri Abdul Kadir Sheikh Fadzir as his deputies.
Other deputy presidents are former leaders of Sabah and Sarawak - Tuaran MP Datuk Seri Wilfred Bumburing, former PBB leader Datuk Seri Bujang Ulis and former Sarawak deputy chief minister Datuk Seri Daniel Tajem.
Speaking at its launch at the Tunku Abdul Rahman Memorial, Razaleigh said he hoped that Amanah would help the silent majority make their voices heard to break free from political manipulators holding the country at ransom.
Razaleigh said Amanah emphasised on the spirit of sincerity to boost racial ties, as propagated by Tunku, and that the Masjid Negara was a symbol of racial and religious unity.
“People of all races and religion contributed towards the building of the RM10mil mosque - this is Tunku's legacy,” he said.
