PM has video evidence of senior civil servants campaigning for BN.
In the run-up to GE14, shariah judges, vice-chancellors of public universities and super-scale government officials had campaigned for Barisan Nasional (BN) and these heads are now likely to roll.
They wore BN attire, made speeches, recited poems and used their position of influence to get Malaysians to vote for Najib Razak and the coalition – turning on its head the cherished principle of neutrality of the civil service.
The axe is now expected to fall on several senior civil servants, said government sources.
This was discussed in the Pakatan Harapan presidential council meeting recently, which prompted Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s call to civil servants to be loyal to the government of the day.
Sources told The Malaysian Insight that those in the meeting expressed concern that these senior civil servants, who are still in service, might sabotage Pakatan Harapan’s efforts to save the country.
“Although no names were mentioned, the prime minister told the meeting that he has video and photograph evidence of these senior civil servants,” said a source.
“These people held ceramah and campaigned while wearing the BN shirt.”
The source said in the run-up to GE14, shariah judges and vice-chancellors of public universities had come out in force to campaign for BN candidates.
“The prime minister is worried that these senior civil servants will later prove to be obstacles to PH in carrying out its policies.
“Some of these civil servants were appointed not because they could do the job, but because of their relationship with Najib.” – TMI
