PETALING JAYA: Netizens have dissmissed, Rafizi Ramli's apology on Wednesday for the by-election in Kajang. 

Charles Furfur Lee, in response to the statement by PKR Information Chief, said " Owhh just shut up already. You guys are no different than the ones you kutuk (insult).

Wan Zul said " I always thought Rafizi is different from other politicians who treat us like idiots. Apparently I'm wrong. Shame on you Rafizi."

Many also expressed that they feel used and that the welfare of the people has not been taken into consideration by the politicians.

Izzati Maamor commented "Two wrongs don't make a right. You treat rakyat like a pawn. Rakyat has gone through enough difficulties."

While Kuan Ki Kok said no matter what explanation/excuse PKR had, it is not 'keadilan' (fair) to the Rakyat anymore.

In addition to that many were amused by the words of Rafizi, relating the situation to Winston Churchill and said that he could not justify the situation by relating it to the past, which occurred in Europe.

Napsiah Wan Salleh commented, " What has Churchill got to do with Kajang's turn of events? And the people of Europe then, were not responsible for the acts of Neville Chamberlain, so how could Rafizi deduce that the sentiments of the Europeans then was to appease Hitler?

While, Megat Ishak said "Its comedy hour here!! Churchill?! Nazis??! What relevance is that? Are we under threat from Nazis?

Some others also expressed that the party (PKR) has disappointed the people, and have lost the trust of the people.

Michael Lee said “Bunch of liars. After all the support the Malaysians have given to PKR. Never PKR again."

Atan Jamil said “After this episode, who is there left for us to believe?”

On Wednesday, Rafizi had made an apology for the by-election in Kajang, disclosing that he was one of the primary reasons for the event to take place. 

The Pandan MP also said that good political leaders will never be popular and it pains him that PKR have to drag Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim through this and subject him to public anger.

“The conviction of doing the right thing, in the face of extreme criticism and public anger, remains a yardstick of what an honest leadership is,” said Rafizi .
