Muar MP Syed Saddiq’s Withdrawal from Supporting Unity Government Elicits Praise for Principles: Report

In a recent turn of events, Muar MP Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman’s decision to withdraw his support for the Unity Government has garnered admiration for his unwavering commitment to principles. Former Rembau MP Khairy Jamaluddin Abu Bakar has commended Syed Saddiq’s stance, emphasizing that it is rooted in a principled approach.
The catalyst for Syed Saddiq’s withdrawal was the issue surrounding the “discharge not amounting to an acquittal” (DNAA) concerning Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi. Syed Saddiq’s move has sparked a debate among political circles.

Khairy Jamaluddin, acknowledging the argument that Syed Saddiq secured victory due to support from voters aligned with the Pakatan Harapan (PH) coalition, contended that it should be PH MPs who consider resigning, not Syed Saddiq. He lauded the Muar MP for maintaining his commitment to PH platform policies and his honesty as an MP.
On the contrary, Pakatan Harapan (PH) MPs argued that Khairy Jamaluddin and others should resign, accusing them of violating the PH manifesto from the previous general election. They highlighted Khairy’s cooperation with Umno and Zahid Hamidi as contrary to the promises made in the manifesto.

Khairy Jamaluddin argued that the focus should be on PH resigning and seeking a new mandate from the voters, as they had allegedly broken their promises to the electorate. He pointed out that Syed Saddiq remained true to his principles, distinguishing himself as the only one upholding the rejection of certain agreements while others were perceived as compromising on those principles.

Khairy, in a podcast discussion with former Umno information chief Shahril Sufian Hamdan, expressed his dislike for bullying tactics and emphasized that he sees Syed Saddiq as a principled individual, despite not being his primary supporter. This recent development highlights the nuanced political dynamics within Malaysia and the varying interpretations of commitment to principles in the ever-evolving political landscape.
