Zahid to Hadi: Change government during GE16, not now

KUALA LUMPUR: Change the government in the next general election, says Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

In response to Pas president Tan Sri Abdul Hadi Awang’s statement that the government will fall, Ahmad Zahid said that was a “bad prayer” coming from an ulama.

“That was a bad prayer and as a political ulama’, he (Abdul Hadi) has his own ‘fatwas’ that only work according to certain situations. You can evaluate it yourself,” he told the reporters at the Rural and Regional Ministry monthly meeting in Risda here on Thursday (March 2).

Ahmad Zahid also said there were more pressing issues that the politicians should focus on instead of politicking.

“What’s important now is political stability and issues facing the rakyat. Let’s stop having different views or opinions. If they want to change the government, do it at the 16th General Election,” he added.

Previously, Abdul Hadi was reported to have said during a dialogue that the current government will collapse.

He has also said in the Dewan Rakyat to not blame Perikatan Nasional if the government falls.
