On 9 January, Newly appointed Barisan Nasional Secretary-General, Ahmad Maslan claimed that Malaysians without higher education won’t understand the necessity of holding a General Election. Furthermore, he said that only those with a PhD will wholly understand why GE15 needs to be held as soon as possible.
To no one’s surprise, the statement invoked the anger of Malaysians and politicians alike who questioned the need for an election when Covid-19 cases are fluctuating on a daily basis. Later, Ahmad Maslan said in a statement questioning the rakyat, “If you can go to shops, supermarkets, restaurants queuing every day, why not just queue for one day to vote with a strict SOP?”.
Former Barisan Nasional (BN) Secretary-General Tan Sri Annuar Musa has since thrown ‘shade’ at Ahmad Maslan in a tweet saying that he understands now why he was fired which was due to his “lack of a PhD”.
Baru saya sedar..rupanya saya tak ada PhD…..😄
— Annuar Musa (@AnnuarMusa) January 10, 2021
“I just realized now, apparently I don’t have a PhD.”
Despite his tweet, netizens still called out, not only Annuar Musa, but the immaturity among Malaysian politicians who have been putting their ego and positions as top priority.
Previously, Annuar, who is also the Federal Territories Minister was removed from the post of Barisan Nasional Secretary-General and replaced by Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan. Ahmad Maslan, however, said that Annuar was not fired from the post, but was replaced, including his position in Muafakat Nasional (MN), reported Astro Awani.
