Ahuar said he was taken aback by Hilman Idham’s comment that uniting Malay-based parties could become a new political model to guarantee the people’s well-being and the nation’s prosperity.
“Malay politics is to take care of Malays’ welfare,” he said.
As a Sabahan, he said, he did not view Mahathir’s proposal in the same light as Hilman.
“For me, the country will succeed only if all the people, regardless of race, are united.”
He said PKR members are taught to be fair, to promote unity and to uphold all races in building the nation.
“I don’t see the need for Hilman’s statement,” he added.
