A majority of Malaysians on social media want Perikatan Nasional (PN) to take over the federal government, said PN secretary-general and opposition leader Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin

Speaking during a press conference today, 3 November, he claimed that people are unhappy with the government led by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim for not resolving issues affecting the country.

However, he made it clear that the coalition is not considering any such move.

"We are not thinking about taking over the government, but on social media, people are asking when we will be taking over. That's what we're seeing often," he was quoted as saying by FMT.

Hamzah also claimed that the unity government is experiencing internal conflicts over the Palestine Solidarity Week programme in schools

"The Prime Minister said the Palestine Solidarity Week in schools was discussed and agreed on by the Cabinet, but we see that those who are opposing it now are the same ones within the government. There are PKR and DAP members who are opposing what was approved," the Bersatu secretary-general said.

Meanwhile, he alleged that there have been attempts to persuade PN members of parliament (MPs) to defect using indirect bribes

Hamzah claimed that several of his coalition colleagues have been approached by unnamed people who tried to convince them to support Anwar by offering some form of incentives, including money, reported Malay Mail.

Despite this, he said PN will not lodge any complaints or file a report with the police.
