Mukhriz wants compromise in Perak

KUALA LUMPUR, 4 MARCH 2009: Jerlun Member of Parliament Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir has urged the Barisan Nasional (BN) and Pakatan Rakyat (PR) in Perak to come to a compromise and address the main issues like the current economic meltdown.

Mukhriz, who will be contesting the Umno Youth chief post this month, said the impasse would be a disadvantage for all parties involved if allowed to prolong.

“At the moment, we seem to be neglecting other more pressing issues due to the political crisis in Perak. I think this is not fair for the people.

“It is better for the BN and PR to cooperate in administering the state and [solving] economic problems like unemployment faced by the people” he said in an interview with Bernama.

Mukhriz, who is also an Umno Youth executive committee member, said a survey showed that 70% of the people were tired of political issues and wanted all quarters to return to the original path of governing the country well.

“As long as there is no party giving way, the political impasse will remain. And for as long as we delay resolving the problems faced by the people, the more everyone will lose out.”

Mukhriz said the decision on who should be ruling Perak should be made by the court as both parties had taken legal action. — Bernama

    Dei Mukhriz,

    What type of compromise are you talking about?

    If you are a true leader, you should have advocated and advised your members to allow the Perak rakyat to choose the state government, i.e. to call for fresh elections.

    Why leave it to the court to decide? Why not leave it to the people to decide? The courts do not command the confidence of the rakyat. Let the people decide for themselves who they want for a government! Hidup Malaysia! Hidup Perak! Daulat Tuanku!
