Muda in the dark over unity govt meeting, says sec-gen

PETALING JAYA: Malaysian United Democratic Alliance (Muda) has questioned why the party was not invited to the unity government secretariat meeting on Tuesday (Feb 7) night.

Taking to Twitter, Muda secretary-general Amir Abdul Hadi said the party was left in the dark about the meeting, adding that they only found out about it through the media.

“A unity government secretariat meeting was held last night. Our (Muda) logo is there but we didn’t know anything.

"There was no invite or notice and out of the blue, a decision has already been made.

“Perhaps a briefing on the meeting could be given?” he tweeted on Wednesday (Feb 8).

Amir added that as the party’s secretary-general, all forms of communication should go through him.

“We did not receive any letters, messages or even emails. We only know it took place through the media,” he said in response to a user on Twitter.

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim chaired the secretariat meeting which was attended by top leaders of parties such as Umno president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong, Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) parliamentary whip and Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof, among others.

Anwar said that the unity government secretariat also agreed to work as one team, especially in facing the looming state polls.

He added they also agreed to form three committees to strengthen communication strategies and seat negotiations for the state polls, and to monitor politics and government agenda.

The unity government is supported by Pakatan Harapan’s 82 MPs, followed by Barisan Nasional’s 30, Gabungan Rakyat Sabah’s six, GPS’ 23, Warisan’s three, two independent MPs and one each from Parti KDM, Muda and PBM.
