Appointment of Chong To PH Council Shows Coalition’s Recognition Of Swak

KUCHING: The combination of Anwar Ibrahim and Mahathir Mohammad at the helm of the Pakatan Harapan Presidential Council can change the nation’s political landscape.

Abdul Aziz Isa, the Special Assistant to Chong Chieng Jen Kuching Member of Parliament said the duo veteran leaders would help the opposition coalition capture Putrajaya in the next general election and bring change to the country.

“After 60 years of Malayan independence and 54 years of the formation of Malaysia, it is time to end UMNO rule,” he said in a statement.


“Let’s rise up once again in this final battle to get rid of this corrupted and oppressive regime. Our struggle to oust BN will see the light at the end of the tunnel.”

Aziz also congratulated his boss, Chieng Jen who was named as vice-President of Council, saying a representative from East Malaysia at the topmost in opposition politics showed that Pakatan Harapan recognises Sarawak as equal partners in Malaysia.

“Apart from that, I would like to congratulate Pakatan Harapan for the launching of our first common logo. The new common logo truly reflects hope and change. It is the right time for us to finally use one common logo to fight BN,” he added.

Dr Wan Azizah Wan, the PKR president was appointed PH president while PPBM president Muhyiddin Yassin, DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng and Amanah president Mohamad Sabu were made the coalition’s deputy presidents.

PKR’s Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah was named chief secretary and DAP’s Kulasegaran is the pact’s treasurer.

The pact also released bullet-points of their intended 100-day policies should Pakatan Harapan win federal power, which include repealing the Goods and Services Tax (GST), “stabilising” fuel prices and solving Felda’s “issues”, among others.
