Datuk Suhairi: “Datuk Seri Hajiji is the intermediary between me and the Prime Minister.”[Labuan News from this newspaper on the 16th]Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji is the Labuan MP Datuk Su Haili was the middleman who contacted the Prime Minister, not the so-called “bald” agent. In addition, Datuk Suhairi said today that he had never been offered any ministerial position as claimed by PPBM youth chief Wan Ahmad Faisal. The Perikatan Nasional MP, who announced his support for Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, said it was defamation to be accused of trying to induce other Bersatu representatives to follow suit.
Suhayri said he was just kindly telling his colleagues how to get funding for their districts. Wan Ahmad Faizal on Wednesday refuted Suhairi’s denial that a man named “Datuk Bald” threatened Perikatan Nasional MPs and waved cash and promises of projects in front of them. The Machang MP also claimed that Suhairi was trying to lure other PPBM MPs to switch their support to Datuk Seri Anwar, who offered the position of Federal Territories Minister as bait. Wan Ahmad Faisal also said that he had evidence to support his claims. Admitted discussing with Bersatu MPs about securing allocations for constituencies, Suhairi however admitted that he had discussed with Bersatu MP Fahu Huzir in Geri on how to secure allocations for his constituencies as they had talked about raising funds for their constituencies in the absence of such funds. Difficulties in managing constituencies under circumstances. “It is true that I called him but I did not convince him to jump ship. Before I announced my support for the Prime Minister, we had a coffee with several other MPs in Parliament about the difficulties of running a constituency without funding. “After I announced my support for Datuk Seri Anwar, I did call him, recall our previous conversation, and tell him how this was the way to get the funding – on the condition that he supported the government. “I completely let him decide.
“Furthermore, Fahu himself created a new WhatsApp group of 13 MPs instead of a chat group limited to PN and PPBM MPs. “Then I thought he was seriously considering switching his support. . I’m not a broker, I’m just sharing information thinking they too can benefit like I did. “Similarly, I would like to state that my intermediary is not a broker but the Chief Minister of Sabah. I have requested Datuk Seri Hajiji to convey to the Prime Minister that I wish to accept his offer to support him in exchange for the allocation of funds for my constituency.” Sure enough, after my meeting with Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, I got the pro-rata allocation of RM300,000 for November and December. I was told that next year I would receive a full allocation of RM3.5 million to RM4 million for Labuan, as well as other benefits that would be beneficial to my constituents. “I don’t even know who this ‘Datuk Baldhead’ is, nor am I familiar with the other three Bersatu MPs who have announced their support for Datuk Seri Anwar,” added Datuk Suhairi. He said he had been severely punished for his change of attitude and advised Wan Ahmad Faisal not to seek cheap publicity by “attacking me. “The party has abandoned me. Although the Kedah MP who first announced his support was only suspended from the party for four years, I was suspended from the party for six years. It’s not fair, but as a party member I accept the leadership’s decision. “I implore those who defame me not to do so without evidence because I am determined to prosecute them if they continue to do so,” Suhairi said, insisting his focus was on helping his constituents. All he did, he said, was accept the Prime Minister’s offer. He also claimed that he promised voters before last year’s 15th general election that if the Perikatan Nasional was not in government within a year of his election, he would switch his loyalty to the then-government. “Stop dragging my reputation down for cheap publicity. All I want to do is fight for funding for my constituents,” he added.
