Former Prime Minister Najib Razak is now effectively the de facto opposition after he “hijacked” the opposition’s ability to “connect with voters on a day-to-day basis” on his social media pages.
But Rafizi Ramli – who has recently announced his return to active politics – says he is ready to take back that initiative from Najib to boost Pakatan Harapan’s appeal to voters in the upcoming general election.
In an interview with Malaysiakini at his office recently, Rafizi said he used to wake up at 4am to prepare for press conferences or to release press statements daily, in order to forge that connection with the voters.
