Rep: Include Opposition in efforts to take Johor forward


Better bipartisan ties are needed to move Johor forward in the next five years, says Puteri Wangsa assemblyman Amira Aisya Abd Aziz

The Malaysian United Democratic Alliance (Muda) secretary-general said the people’s needs must come before political differences.

Amira Aisya also hoped that the Opposition could be included in the state government’s discussions to develop Johor over the next five years.

“Both sides of the political divide should work together to address issues faced by the rakyat, such as food security and constituency matters.

“The Opposition’s elected representatives are also able to give good views to propel Johor into the future.

“It is time for us to work together,” she told reporters outside the Johor state assembly at Kota Iskandar, Iskandar Puteri.

Johor youth, sports, entrepreneur development, cooperatives and human resources committee chairman Mohd Hairi Mad Shah said the state government welcomed any proposals and ideas from the Opposition.

On working together with the Opposition, he said: “It depends in what capacity.

“We are open to listening to them.”

“If the ideas are feasible, I don’t see why we cannot implement them,” added Mohd Hairi, who is also Johor Umno Youth chief.
