PN 'bold' to appoint Hamzah as opposition leader, says MP – Free Malaysia Today

PETALING JAYA: Perikatan Nasional (PN) has made a “bold statement” in appointing its secretary-general, Hamzah Zainudin, as opposition leader in the Dewan Rakyat, says a Bersatu leader.
“That should speak volumes (on) where we shall be heading as a coalition,” said Bersatu Youth chief Wan Ahmad Fayhsal Wan Ahmad Kamal in an interview with BFM.
The Machang MP said Hamzah was appointed to the post because of his “gravitas” and “deep experience in government”.
Wan Fayshal said while PN chairman Muhyiddin Yassin had similar qualities, Hamzah was an “enigma by himself”.
PN named Hamzah as the opposition leader last week.
Hamzah is the Larut MP and the former home minister.
Asked about claims that PN’s funds for its election campaign partly came from gaming companies, Wan Fayhsal said the funds were largely contributed by its grassroots.

He also said PN obtained funds from private donors, adding that their identities will be disclosed once it is a legal requirement to do so.
“Yes, once the political financing law comes into being, I believe we must be transparent about that. I’m looking forward to that,” he said.
Last week, Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim implied that PN’s funds for its election campaign partly came from gaming companies, particularly those that took part in special 4D draws.
In response, PAS secretary-general Takiyuddin Hassan told Anwar to furnish evidence to back his claim.
He said if Anwar failed to show any proof to support his “wild accusation”, PN will consider taking legal action.
PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang also rubbished Anwar’s claim, saying that only a deranged person would believe such allegations.
