Barisan National’s Pontian MP Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan has been ridiculed in the past for his shenanigans. However, he is now respected among Pakatan Harapan (PH) leaders.
Even Permatang Pauh MP Nurul Izzah Anwar stated that he has a bright future as an opposition MP and insisted that he remain in Umno.
“I am appreciative of the position and role of Ahmad Maslan, the member of Parliament of Pontian. You know he has steadfastly stood up, embarked and engaged in debates and I do not want him to jump, not to Keadilan or Bersatu,” said Nurul Izzah, according to Malay Mail.
“Please stay in Umno, do your job. You have been in power for so long I am sure you are going to be a great opposition and that is what Malaysia needs,” she told a forum held at Sunway University.
She continued by saying that the government would not be able to function without a capable opposition and that PAS would become more powerful if Umno no longer exists.
“You want to dissolve Umno, what happens then? You want Pas to emerge as the strongest? Because I tell you that is going to happen. It’s going to happen,” she insisted.
The PKR vice-president said that Umno MPs would have to stop switching sides in order for the party to remain a strong opposition. Just this month, Umno’s Guar Chempedak state assemblyman Datuk Dr Ku Abd Rahman Ku Ismail joined Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) after Umno veteran Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed left in September to join the party.
According to New Straits Times, apart from Nurul Izzah, even Hannah Yeoh, Deputy Women, Family and Community Development Minister praised Ahmad Maslan as she is impressed by his quality debates and concerns raised in Parliament.
Ahmad Maslan even advised PH leaders not to get involved with the media and told Dr Maszlee Malik, Education Minister to keep calm and focus when answering questions.
