PONTIAN: The viral video of Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizul Azumu lamenting that he is fighting a “lone battle” against DAP in the state may prompt Pakatan Harapan leaders to cross over to join the opposition, says Umno president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi (pic).
He said that Barisan Nasional is only short of two seats to form the state government in Perak.
“I hope we do not have to wait for GE15 for this to happen. Maybe with this problem, we will have the chance of using political discourse to have other political parties join us,” he told the media during his walkabout here in Kukup on Saturday (Nov 9).
He was commenting on a video clip posted on one Azizi Safar’s Facebook page that showed Ahmad Faizal discussing with a group of people on how he has to face DAP over certain issues, including Malay land.
Zahid also claimed the problem in Perak was caused by the DAP, who do not want to give their support to the Perak Mentri Besar.
“We know that they (DAP) have their own Malay candidate to take up the role of Mentri Besar, but that is their problem,” he said.
