SHAH ALAM, 12 Dec: The PKR de facto leader, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, is demanding that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak step up and provide decisive leadership for the country, which is heading towards economic uncertainty.
Anwar said that this is due to plunging global crude oil prices and a weakening ringgit against the US dollar.
He said it is frightening that the economy is rudderless and the captain of the ship is nowhere in sight.
“Where’s the leadership in all this? There has not been one statement forthcoming from the prime minister-cum-finance minister alluding to the current state of our economy, let alone the problems the people are already facing and will have to endure.
“Nothing appears to be done as the Umno Barisan Nasional leaders in typical fashion have gone into denial mode. Surely, it is utterly reckless and irresponsible of the PM and his cabinet to leave the nation in suspense.
“The people need answers. Prime Minister Najib must step up to the plate and explain without any further delay,” the opposition leader said at a press conference at the PKR headquarters in Petaling Jaya today, taken from The Malaysian Insider.
