We will march again if demands not met, says Muafakat Nasional’s Tun Faizal


KUALA LUMPUR: Heed our demands or we will march again, says Muafakat Nasional supreme council member Datuk Tun Faisal Ismail Aziz.

Tun Faisal, who was also one of the organisers of the "Save Malaysia" rally, told the media that Saturday’s (Sept 16) gathering was just the start, with more planned in the future.

"We will do the same in Permatang Pauh and in Bagan Datuk.

"We will continue until change happens. And by change we mean the 're-charging' of Zahid Hamidi (Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi)," he said after the gathering concluded at 3.30pm.

The other demands also include making the Attorney-General's Chambers and Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to be independent from executive powers.

He added that more marches would be organised if the Deputy Prime Minister was not charged again in court, and if their police report against him is not investigated.

"We feel that something is amiss. Our demands are not for show," he said.

He also alleged that many in the government bloc were unhappy with the discharge not amounting to an acquittal (DNAA) decision.

"The only one that seems to be in support is Umno. This is an issue that has caused the public to lose belief in the government and Prime Minister," he said.

The gathering dispersed peacefully at 3.30pm after the participants sang the Negaraku.

Police personnel were on standby to assist in crowd control.
