KUALA LUMPUR: Former de facto law minister Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said said Pakatan Harapan (PH) government has no choice but to deliver all promises made to the people. Speaking to reporters at the Parliament lobby, Azalina said political manifestos were considered as promises therefore must be delivered at all cost. “I believe that the people also voted for them because of their manifesto and of course the expectation is high. “It is also good that they (the leaders) used to be the opposition and (they can) now understand how is it to be a government. “(Being the government) is not easy because they are so many things to evaluate, especially in this multiracial and multi-religious country,” she said. Pas deputy president Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man has today rated the PH government performance as less than 30 per cent, as it failed to fulfil 10 promises within the 100 day as promised in the 14th general elections (GE14). Asked on survey conducted by Merdeka Centre, which saw Malaysians gave Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad 71 per cent approval rating, Azalina said: “The people trust him based on the fact that he was previously the prime minister.

“If you have been prime minister twice of course you are considered credible than other untested personality. “You cannot blame the people’s biasness towards him,” she said stressing that he statement was her personal view and not of the party’s. © New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd
