Every election, politicians and their parties make promises to the people in an effort to garner votes. And once they’ve been elected into the government, they’re supposed to implement those promises.
But, does this really happen?
Malaysian United Democratic Alliance (MUDA) president and Muar MP Syed Saddiq took to his Twitter account to call out the government led by Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim (DSAI) for not fulfilling their promises, labelling them as NATO – No Action, Talk Only.
Among the promises that was mentioned, that has yet to be fulfilled include:
- fair and equitable allocations for all members of Parliament (no matter if they are a part of the government or the opposition)
- property declaration of Cabinet Members
- the refusal to drop corruption cases
“It’s been months, nothing has been done yet. These are all basic reforms that can be done immediately. Why is it taking so long? This is the ‘NATO’ Government. No Action, Talk Only. Not ‘Walk the Talk’,” he wrote.
This comes after Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Law and Institutional Reform) Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said claimed that the government ‘Walks the Talk’, as it is committed in the separation of power between the Attorney-General and public prosecutor to ensure that the integrity of the judicial institution is protected.
