KUALA LUMPUR – Former Youth and Sports minister Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman today said that he would rather lose all of his position than backing the newly appointed prime minister president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s leadership.
Saddiq reiterated his stand against choosing party president Muhyiddin Yassin to succeed over Dr Mahathir Mohamad as prime minister. The appointment of Muhyiddin as the eighth prime minister sparked issue between the Bersatu party.
“Unfortunately I rather lose all my positions than my moral conscience. Send my regards to Tan Sri” Syed Saddiq said in a twitter post reply.
Last night, Wan Ahmad Fayhsal Wan Ahmad Kamal’s Twitter posting said after his meeting with Muhyiddin that lasted almost two hours, he is convinced to support the Pagoh MP’s leadership as prime minister.
His post had attracted over 1,000 comments and a number of critics who reminded him of his twitter post on February 29, which he stand by for Syed Saddiq and Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
Md Redzuan Md Yusof and Rina Harun and some of the Bersatu members had expressed support to Muhyiddin as prime minister.
