DR Mahathir Mohamad’s latest party has failed to ignite the interest of his Langkawi constituents even as sacked Bersatu grassroots leaders and members believe more will quit to join Pejuang, which applied for registration yesterday.

From random interviews with Langkawi folk, several told The Malaysian Insight they are unclear about Pejuang’s purpose and did not see the need for so many Malay parties.

  • We need to move on from the past.

    We need to move on even from Anwar as well (to be honest, weak leadership so far - from putting PKR's house in order and... since when do you see him giving plans or giving sound advice on nation building?)

    We need new leadership from fresh people such as Rafizi Ramli.

    Sadly, people like them chose to back off from political scene.
