NAJIB Razak should distance himself from the Umno front line so that it can continue championing the party’s struggle with a new image.

“Awang Selamat”, the pseudonym for the Umno-owned Utusan Malaysia’s editorial team, said this in a piece in Mingguan Malaysia, the newspaper’s Sunday edition, today.

The editorial was on observations on Pakatan Harapan and Umno in the new government’s first 100 days following the May 9 general election, which saw Barisan Nasional fall from power.

It said besides watching closely the PH government and monitoring the progress made on the pact’s election pledges, the people are observing Umno, too.

“Many factors led to Umno and BN’s defeat in the 14th general election. Among them were the goods and services tax, which caused prices to increase, Umno leaders being linked to corruption, insensitive statements issued by several ministers then, and the former prime minister’s credibility and integrity issues.

“Awang heard that the people could have accepted GST, but they opposed it because they believed the tax was collected to pay off debts resulting from misappropriation by the former prime minister and his leadership, which had mismanaged government-linked companies like Tabung Haji, 1Malaysia Development Bhd, Retirement Fund Inc and Felda.”

The editorial said civil servants were concerned about what was happening, and the issues that cropped up led them to losing confidence in Najib and his team.
