IPOH: Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu says he is not aware of a video circulating on social media accusing him of talking about the possibility of Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) pulling out from the Pakatan Harapan coalition.

Ahmad’s press secretary Adie Surie Zulkefli said the Menteri Besar's remarks made earlier saying the issue would be discussed by Bersatu's supreme council, as well as the Pakatan Harapan Council, was in fact referring to a video which had surfaced earlier.

“He thought the media was asking about the video on Nov 8, ” Adie said.

The latest video which appeared on Nov 9 is a 1-min-9-sec clip posted by a Facebook user under the name of Ddiy Putra.

In it, a man clad in a Barisan T-Shirt and cap claims that Ahmad had discussed the idea of taking Bersatu out of the coalition.

Two more men then appear in the video claiming to have heard the same thing.

The men then ask Ahmad to come and see them if he thinks that the video is being edited to convey untruths.

“Berani kerana benar, ” says by one of the men in the video.

Adie said the Menteri Besar would be responding to the issue of this latest video clip.

“Ahmad is currently attending the state meeting. He will respond to the issue later, ” he said.

The previous video from Nov 8 showed Ahmad lamenting that he was fighting a “lone battle” against the DAP.
