Muslims mustn’t be arrogant in politics, says Amanah delegate

Amanah held its convention in Shah Alam today.

SHAH ALAM: Malays and Muslims should set aside the attitude of being too obsessive and arrogant when it comes to politics, an Amanah delegate from Melaka, Jamzuri Ardani, said at the Amanah convention here.

“Stubbornness and intolerance can only cause harm. We must reject the use of religion for personal gain,” he said.

He said it was important for Amanah to bring a political narrative that is fresh and new to the people of the state, regardless of race or religion.

“Amanah members and leaders also need to be smart and clever in communicating the party’s political narrative message effectively and to see that it is well received by the people, especially those in the rural areas,” he said.

PH should focus on Sabah’s vote bank, says delegate

Pakatan Harapan needs to make Sabah the coalition’s “fixed deposit” state because it is seen as being capable of helping in winning a general election.

The matter was raised by Sabah delegate Rendy Ismail at the 2019 Amanah convention here.

He said in the 14th general election, Sabah contributed 14 parliamentary seats to the government, proving Sabah’s significant contribution and importance to the formation of the PH government.

He said it was important for the government to safeguard the interests of the people in need in the state.

“So I ask the ministers to look to Sabah. Amanah needs to prove its ability to deliver the ‘Rahmatan Lil Alamin’ (Mercy and Blessings to all creations) message. in Sabah, there are still many people who are struggling and many houses with bamboo walls.

“Even the road conditions in Sabah are bad. I ask the minister to give priority to infrastructure development and many other basic amenities,” he said when debating the president’s speech today.
