In a recent session at the Dewan Rakyat, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, representing Tambun-PH, engaged in a heated exchange with opposition leader Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin of Larut-PN. The confrontation stemmed from a follow-up question by Hamzah regarding Anwar’s explanation of the new Madani Economy framework compared to the now-defunct 2030 Shared Prosperity Vision.

Hamzah referenced an interview that Anwar had with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, remarking that Anwar’s Dewan Rakyat response was more favorable and that he should have presented himself similarly during the CNN interview. This remark elicited scattered laughter from the opposition bloc.
The exchange escalated as Hamzah pressed Anwar to provide a detailed plan to address the rising cost of goods. In response, Anwar criticized Hamzah for forming conclusions based on snippets of the CNN interview instead of watching the complete interview. Anwar recommended that Hamzah and others watch the full interview to avoid making judgments based on edited clips.

Anwar defended his CNN interview performance, asserting that his answers were consistent with what he presented during a dialogue session with the Council on Foreign Relations. He accused some individuals of deliberately editing the interview to create a false impression. Anwar’s response received rounds of applause from the audience.

It’s worth noting that Anwar’s performance in the CNN interview had previously garnered praise from political analysts, particularly for his adept handling of key issues, even amid criticism regarding his management of “contentious internal affairs.”

In this exchange, Anwar Ibrahim defended his stance on the Madani Economy framework and called for a more comprehensive understanding of his CNN interview, emphasizing the importance of viewing the full context rather than relying on selectively edited snippets.
