PETALING JAYA: Nurul Izzah Anwar says the Government will take into account the concerns shown by the people regarding Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s new national car project.  

“Am in full agreement with you and am sure your concerns will be duly noted by the powers that be,” the PKR vice-president said in a tweet on Monday (June 11).  

She was responding to Twitter user Arif Kamarudzaman who asked about the rationality behind the plan of rebooting the national car instead of empowering existing public transportation to match those of developed nations.  

“Please reconsider,” he tweeted.  

Nurul Izzah had also retweeted a tweet by user TK Thiagarajah, who hoped the Government did not go down the national car path again.   

“Let’s emphasise world class public transport! We really do not need a Proton 2!!!,” he said.  

Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad had said on Monday (June 11) that the Government intends to launch a new national car company, since Proton has been bought over by China’s Geely.  

MCA publicity spokesman Datuk Seri Ti Lian Ker had in a statement asked whether this plan was raised and decided in the Cabinet.
