Gua Musang MP breaks silence, says Bersatu leaders reached out to him

KOTA BARU: Gua Musang Member of Parliament, Mohd Azizi Abu Naim, who recently declared his allegiance to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and the unity government, has broken his silence.

He said he chose to remain silent and reject calls during this period to maintain composure and avoid disturbances.

However, he disclosed today that he had received calls from five top leaders of Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu), including the party's president, the details of which he was not prepared to divulge.

"Five top leaders from Bersatu had called me yesterday including the party's president but I am not ready to explain the details.

"I received their calls after four years of joining the party," he told the New Straits Times.

Azizi also expressed willingness to face any consequences for his decision, emphasising that it was made in the interest of the people in Gua Musang.

"I have made this decision for the benefit of the people in my constituency.

"I hope voters will understand and I leave it to them to judge me as my presence in Parliament is also the result of their trust," he added.

Claiming the support of his family in making this decision, Azizi also addressed questions about changing his parliamentary seat, clarifying that he only requested a minor adjustment while remaining within the opposition ranks.

On Nov 7, Azizi declared his support for Anwar and the unity government, a move later echoed by Jeli MP Zahari Kechik two days later.

This brings the total count of Bersatu MPs supporting Anwar and the Madani government to four, including Kuala Kangsar MP Datuk Iskandar Dzulkarnain Abdul Khalid and Labuan MP Datuk Dr Suhaili Abdul Rahman.
