Umno Supreme Council member Datuk Zahidi Zainul Abidin said today that voters only have themselves to blame for the country’s current political instability, as the Perikatan Nasional (PN) administration’s fate remains in the balance.
The deputy communications and multimedia minister said the precarious split in the Dewan Rakyat is the result of voters choosing their representatives during the last general election, which saw Barisan Nasional (BN) trounced by Pakatan Harapan.
“And the ones that caused this situation is the people. The people are the ones who voted like they did, because they were lied to,” he claimed after attending a BN meeting at PWTC this evening.
Despite his claim, the current PN government, which also included Umno, was the result of Muhyiddin and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia allying itself with former political enemies, after which Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad resigned as prime minister.
