GOMBAK: Bersatu Youth chief Wan Ahmad Fayhsal Wan Ahmad Kamal has sounded the death knell for “Reformasi”, the slogan first used by supporters of Anwar Ibrahim and adopted by Pakatan Harapan supporters to demand reforms.
Instead, Wan Fayhsal led a crowd of Perikatan Nasional supporters in chanting “Referendum”, reflecting the view that tomorrow’s elections in six states would also be a vote on Anwar’s unity government.
Wan Fayhsal, speaking at a PN election ceramah here, said voters had been promised “false reforms” by the current unity government, including unfulfilled promises.
“For the past 10 months, they (Pakatan Harapan) have been yelling ‘reformasi’,” he said. “But believe me, ‘reformasi’ is dead. How is reform possible when the number two has 47 court cases,” Wan Fayshal said, referring to the charges against deputy prime minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.
Zahid is standing trial on 47 corruption charges in relation to the foundation he leads. Twelve charges are for criminal breach of trust, eight for graft, and 27 for money laundering.
“Enough is enough, we have been lied to and we have been duped,” he said, leading the crowd in chanting “Referendum”.
He urged voters in Hulu Kelang to come out in droves to support PN candidate Azmin Ali, who is in a straight fight for the Hulu Kelang seat with Pakatan Harapan’s Juwairiya Zulkifli.
