Annuar Musa: PM will always face attacks
KUALA LUMPUR: It is common for the person holding the post of prime minister to be attacked by various parties, said Umno Information chief Tan Sri Annuar Musa.
He said the country’s number one post, which is normally held by the Umno president, often leads to the incumbent being maligned and having to deal with political hatred. Such attacks were not a new thing but has occurred since the era of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who held both positions, he added.
He said similar accusations and attacks occurred while Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi helmed the country and there were efforts to provoke hatred and topple him.
Annuar said Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak was “ignored” when he was holding various ministerial and Umno positions.
“But when he (became prime minister) all kinds of attacks and slander surfaced.” – Bernama
