PUTRAJAYA: Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi (pic) on Thursday pledged his loyalty and strong support for Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak in the face of the trials and slander the latter had to put up with.

The Deputy Prime Minister said the political arena was witnessing the persecution of Najib as the main leader of the administration and that, as the No. 2, he himself was also feeling the effects.

"Certain quarters are deliberately attacking the centre of gravity, the Prime Minister, who heads the institution of leadership, to paint a bad picture of the government, and this must be addressed.

"As the No. 2, I will not leave the Prime Minister to face the tribulations all by himself, but will stand by him," he said when closing an international conference on the role of loyalty in prospering the nation, at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre here.

Also present at the event were Minister in the Prime Minister''s Department Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom and the Religious Advisor to the Prime Minister and Chairman of the Wasatiyyah Institute of Malaysia Tan Sri Dr Abdullah Md Zin. - Bernama
