Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim recently made an appearance at the 78th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York where he gave a speech.
During his speech, it appeared that the hall was pretty empty and quiet which led to Kedah Chief Minister, Datuk Seri Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor commenting on the appearance of the Prime Minister as bland and a failure to get the attention of world leaders.
Sanusi said that the silent situation in the hall when Anwar delivered the speech was quite embarrassing.
“People compare the 9th Prime Minister’s (PM9) speech (Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob) with the PM10’s speech at the UNGA. What is the difference? The difference is that when PM9 spoke there was a crowd, but when PM10 spoke, there was no one. there was only the Malaysian delegation.”
“Why is there no one? Because even outsiders know that he is a liar. As Malaysians, we should be ashamed because when he speaks at the UNGA, people don’t want to listen,” he added.
Sanusi also made fun of Anwar’s speech when delivering the Friday sermon at the Islamic Cultural Center of New York (ICCNY) and said that the Malaysia MADANI concept is empty and does not provide any benefit to the people.
Not his fault
Despite the claims, it seems that some netizens have had a response to this. According to online videos, the majority of the attendees and members walked out during Israel’s PM Benjamin Netanyahu speech as a sign of protest.
Anwar’s turn was a few rounds later on which could’ve explained the emptiness of the hall.
UNITED NATIONS –– Israel's PM Benjamin Netanyahu started his speech at the UN with an empty UNGA hall greeting him to the podium.
Most of the attendees left the hall in solidarity with the Palestinians. 👏 👏 👏
