Malaysian PM claims unity government free from corruption, ushering in new era

MALAYSIA — In an unprecedented declaration, Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim revealed that his unity government has remained free from corruption since its inception eight months ago.

Last Sunday (16 Jul), at the Penang unity election machinery launch, the Prime Minister asserted that each minister in his Cabinet was closely monitored by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and the police, with not one corruption case discovered among them.

“We need to clean up and save the country. If we don’t clean up, this country will go to the dogs,” stated Ibrahim, emphasizing the critical need for a corruption-free government in Malaysia.

He further called out his political opponents, reminding them of their tainted track records and urging them to adhere to principles of integrity and good governance.

The coalition of Pakatan Harapan (PH) and Barisan Nasional (BN) has not been a smooth ride, admitted Ibrahim. Yet, he emphasized that unity was driven by principles, rather than power, aiming to ensure the country’s stability.

Ibrahim acknowledged the apprehensions within the PH about collaborating with BN and Umno president Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, but affirmed that the unity government is crucial to maintain stability and attract major international investors.

“Our unity government has managed to draw investments and interest from major global corporations like Elon Musk’s Tesla and SpaceX, Hong Kong’s Richard Li, Saudi Arabia’s Aramco and China’s Geely Auto. Richard Li has shown an interest in investing in Malaysia, and Aramco has decided to make Malaysia its Asian hub,” disclosed Ibrahim.

The Prime Minister attributed this inflow of investments to the unity government’s diligent efforts. He also expressed his belief that the united front of PH-BN in Penang could herald a historic win for the unity coalition in the upcoming state elections.

“Umno has its stronghold in the rural areas, DAP in the urban areas, while PKR is a mix of both. So if we have a strong strategy and pool together the strength of our grassroots, no one can shake us,” he said, signaling optimism for the electoral contests.

However, he emphasized the need for hard work to continue the government’s trajectory of success, thereby contributing to the betterment of Malaysia.
