Syed Saddiq: MUDA Is Officially Registered As A Political Party
In the past week, the Malaysian United Democratic Alliance (MUDA) has been all over social media for helping out flood victims. Just yesterday (29 December), the Muar MP Syed Saddiq announced that MUDA has officially been registered as a political party.
According to Syed Saddiq, MUDA was notified of its registration via email and official letter on 23 December but due being occupied with flood relief efforts, they had to delay the announcement. The Muar MP thanked the judiciary and MUDA's lawyers for the party's legal victory against the government for previously rejecting their registration.
“We did not want the flood crisis to be drowned with news of politics, that is on MUDA’s registration. That is why we took the stand and decided to focus first, as we were all over Malaysia for the flood mission and to lighten the burden of the rakyat, and only a week after did we announce this good news,” Syed Saddiq said.
“This MUDA is not a party that wants revenge or that is jealous or holds a grudge. That is why, thank you too to the government which did not appeal the court decision and the country’s judiciary. We are not here to exert revenge or to burn bridges. MUDA’s main focus is not to fight for power but to serve the people, to ensure that Malaysia becomes a developed country, a dignified country. A country where its people of all races and religion are honoured, those with a moderate ideology. Old and young jointly serving. MUDA is a party for all and is the party of the future,” he added.
Syed Saddiq also said that over 60,000 applicants have been recorded via MUDA's "Geng MUDA" online registration drive. He stressed that the membership was not restricted by age, as the oldest member recorded is 83 years old, expecting more citizens to sign up for the membership following MUDA's official registration.
