Members of the party are defending the leader’s call for a pause in politicking in Malaysia. They say, “Asking to pause ni bukanlah perkara yang popular, I admit. Tapi it is the right thing to do. I joined this party to do right things not popular things.”
In full English, the member is saying the party’s call for a pause in Malaysian politics is not a popular stance, but it is the right thing to do.
Nevertheless, a majority of netizens on Twitter are against the idea of a ‘pause’, blasting the leader of the party and the party in the process.
Some are saying it is one of the latest attempt to block Anwar from becoming Prime Minister. The pro-opposition activists on Twitter are serious about their idea of a cynical Mahathir puppeteering Syed Sadiqq to campaign against Anwar.
In the original message, Syed says, “Cukup cukup lah bergaduh! Sambil ada yang berebut takhta kuasa, rakyat terus menderita dan sengsara. ENOUGH! Fokus jaga rakyat! #PauseMalaysia”
The hashtag #PauseMalaysia has some 16,000 tweets. Syed is saying “Enough of squabbling! While some are vying for power, the people continue to suffer and suffer. Focus on taking care of the people.”
Supporters of Keadilan, the party of Anwar, ganged up to attack Syed and the party Muda telling them off.
Tiba-tiba dok teringat Mr. Pause punya melenting waktu malam meeting akhir ph sebelum ph jatuh. Bukan main melenting Mr. Pause waktu minta Mahathir tepati janji serah kuasa pada Anwar. Itu ke agenda @partimuda ? Menuntut janji digelar “gila kuasa”? pic.twitter.com/BSYvZGxd4P

The account on Twitter is saying asking Syed Sadiqq whether this is the agenda of the Parti Muda, that is when the Keadilan is asking for the return of the power invested to it by the people, is it that its leaders are crazy for power?
Upon the launch of the party, Twitter and Facebook were full of jokes for Syed Sadiqq. Netizens toyed with the name of the party.
Instead of MUDA, they wrote MADU on Twitter, saying after a youth party, Malaysia now needs a party for married people or others said there is a need for a party for divorcees.
