After Johor setback, Dr Mahathir said Pejuang would keep fighting, but will learn from its mistakes
Despite its defeat in the Johor state election, Parti Pejuang Tanah Air (Pejuang) head Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said on Friday that the party would continue to “fight” in Malaysia’s political arena.
Pejuang had recognized many flaws that had contributed to its defeat in the state elections, according to the former prime minister, and stated that his party would study them and find methods to improve since this was its duty.
During a news conference that was livestreamed on Facebook, he said that Pejuang will continue to emphasize and fight for public needs concerns.
He added that they realized, much to their dismay, that the country’s future, particularly that of the Malay people, may not be secure due to corruption.
“However, we concentrated too much on corruption, and we forgot to emphasize bread-and-butter concerns like job losses, food shortages, and homelessness as a result of a lack of funds.” he remarked
