Syed Saddiq: Muda officially registered, not to exact revenge

Party aims to make Malaysia a better-developed and largely diversified country


THE Malaysia United Democratic Alliance (Muda) stresses that it is not out to seek revenge or seize power, but rather to serve the people as well as the country.

Muda co-founder Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman (picture) said the party aims to make Malaysia a better-developed and largely diversified country.

“We are not here to exact revenge or to burn bridges. The main focus of Muda is not to seize power, but to serve the community and ensure that Malaysia will be a developed and diversified country,” Syed Saddiq said in a virtual media conference yesterday.

He said Muda was officially registered as a political party last Thursday (Dec 24) and obtained its registration from the Registrar of Societies (RoS) via email.

“We received the email last Thursday and apart from that, Muda’s representative also received an official letter of Muda’s registration yesterday (Tuesday) as an officially registered party,” stated Syed Saddiq.

He said the delayed announcement was due to Muda leaders’ flood relief missions across the country last week.

“Most of Muda’s leaders were in Pahang last week. The Internet line is very weak and there are no telephone lines in some places, so it is quite difficult for us to announce this good news.”

He added that Muda acts as a party to “serve” and its priority is to serve the people. “We do not want the flood crisis to be overwhelmed by political news of Muda’s registration, which is why we take a stand and determination to focus on the flood missions first.” He stressed that Muda is the party for all Malaysians, for the future, young and old, regardless of religion and race.

“Although we lack political experience, we are experienced in the services, professional, corporate, NGO sectors. So, we want to focus on the serving record,” he said.

As of now, Muda has received 60,000 membership applications through its official website, is a non-bureaucratic transparent process of registration in which we want to ensure that we are a very digitally disruptive party.

“Muda is open to all Malaysians regardless of age, religion or races,” he reiterated.

According to Syed Saddiq, Muda will launch its “listening tools project” by looking forward to reaching five million Malaysians across the country to get their views and opinions.

He said the people’s opinion will be channelled to build Muda’s way forward in turbocharging the country’s development.

“We plan to hit the ground running very soon after the Covid-19 and flood crises are over,” he further said.

At the same time, Syed Saddiq thanked the national judiciary, the Federal Constitution as it preserves the principles and separation of powers that eventually led to Muda’s registration.

“Also, we thank the government for not appealing the decisions of the courts and judicial institutions of the country.”
