SHAH ALAM - Have you ever wondered how Pakatan Harapan (PH) would perform in the upcoming state elections if jailed former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak were to receive a royal pardon, in addition to the coalition's ironic alliance with its arch-nemesis, Barisan Nasional (BN).

In Sinar Daily's Politically Frank segment, this hypothetical question was posed to Pakatan's Hulu Langat MP Mohd Sany Hamzan:

"If Najib is granted a pardon by His Majesty the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, in my view, it is a matter allowed within the constitution and laws of our country.

"I believe the process of granting a pardon to Najib is not an easy matter as he needs to go through various processes and face issues before he is pardoned," he said.

But will the pardon take a toll on Pakatan’s voters in the state polls?

Sany asserted that the voters are wise enough to make assessments to choose which leaders they believe should be entrusted with leadership roles.

"That issue may possibly be resolved by the leadership.

"Even in Pakatan Harapan, we have our own bureaus. I believe this matter will be handled wisely," he said.

Meanwhile, Selangor, the wealthiest state in Malaysia continues to grapple with an ongoing water shortage or river pollution , either way, it is an issue that always makes headlines in the news.

Sany believes the issue is simply unacceptable and that people need to care for the environment since water is a crucial resource.

"Even in the Selangor state assembly, we requested for existing laws to be tightened because these polluters are driven by profit.

"They open factories, invest, and make profits, perhaps in millions, tens of millions, or even hundreds of millions. But they dispose polluted materials, prohibited substances, in places where they shouldn't," he said.

He raised a crucial question about what will be left for future generations if water pollution persists.

"What will we do to ensure the continuation of life in Malaysia? That’s why we must protect the environment," he added.
