Musa's candor is bipartisanship's grist
COMMENT Finally, Musa Hitam had something to say about the party of change (read: Pakatan Rakyat) and, by implication, the party of the status quo which, needless to say, is BN.
It's not his style to have declined to say something, given the gravity of the issues before the electorate and of the decision that voters must make at GE13.
To have avoided making a comment would have been contrary to his instincts as a politician, albeit a retired one, and his stature as an elder statesman in Malaysian councils.
Someone in his situation could not be expected to have let current matters pass without comment of the objective sort. Umno man though he is, a reflexive partisanship is just not his style...
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
