If at all there were to be a new deputy prime minister, we would definitely want someone who is clean, sincere and with calibre.
With the Sarawak state elections around the corner, talks have since surfaced that the next general election would also soon be called.
Along with these rumours, voters like me heard that there was a possibility our prime minister may soon appoint Mohamed Azmin Ali as our new deputy prime minister.
The main reason for this is that for us laymen, we never heard or read of any conclusion to his alleged sexual misconduct cases.
Also, for us, we feel someone like Azmin should not be given such a strong portfolio because he was greatly involved in the Sheraton move, which to many of us was something dishonest.
We wonder how come justice was so quickly served on other politicians embroiled in cases of sexual misconduct while there has been no conclusion to the allegations surrounding Azmin.
For us Malaysians, if at all there were to be a new deputy prime minister, we would definitely want someone who is clean, sincere, and with calibre.
It is time the police and the Attorney-General let the public know what is the outcome of his sexual misconduct cases because it is not fair that others are so quickly punished and he is not.
As a voter, I urge our leadership not to give us a deputy prime minister who is a “laughing stock” and a “butt of jokes”.
We are a proud nation, and we want quality leaders and not someone embroiled in a gay sex scandal.
It is not only time for new blood, but also perhaps time for a new, bold, multi-racial party that can give us Malaysians hope and renewal for a better future.
