KUALA LUMPUR – Followers of Datuk Seri Najib Razak are nurturing hopes for the ex-prime minister to join hands with Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin for the nation’s betterment amidst economic hardships and escalating living costs.

Malaysia National Unity Organisation President, Syed Muhammad Imran Syed Abdul Aziz has voiced optimism about the nation’s fortification through the unity of these former leaders, especially in light of current economic trials.

This sentiment follows Muhyiddin, chair of Perikatan Nasional (PN), extending wishes for Najib’s swift recovery amid his Covid-19 treatment at Kuala Lumpur Hospital (HKL).

"The country’s strength hinges on their collaboration.

"I anticipate a steeper climb in essentials’ prices with diesel subsidy rollbacks and an eight per cent hike in the service tax (SST)," Syed Imran said in a statement yesterday.

Najib’s loyalists have reportedly yearned for such a union for seven years, a prospect seemingly closer after Muhyiddin’s public well-wishes.

Meanwhile, the Umno Kampung Melayu Batu Caves South Branch head foresees a fortified Umno and Najib’s political comeback if aligned with PN.

"We wait the upcoming general election, but we must seize the momentum.

"To the Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) and the Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS), I believe that we will unite with the PN. Let's move forward; don't wait any longer.

"Remember, hold fast to the rope of Allah, don't be divided. InshaAllah, Muhyiddin and Najib will unite this time," he said.

Friday marked a thaw in relations as Muhyiddin publicly inquired about Najib's health.

The rift in the relationship between the Bersatu President and Najib is no longer a secret, especially after he chose to 'challenge' his former 'boss' by exposing issues related to 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).

As a result, in 2015, Muhyiddin had to pay a high price when he was removed from his positions as deputy prime minister and Umno deputy president.

Najib is currently serving a 14-month sentence at Kajang Prison after being found guilty of misappropriating funds from SRC International Sdn Berhad. - AWANI
