In a time where people are going through difficult times especially with thousands facing unemployment and more, Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi acknowledges that people are asking him to address the concerns they have.
In his Facebook statement Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi stated, “I welcome every view, ideas, and complaints you have. However, my brothers and sisters I am not in any position to decide on behalf of the government. What I can do is speak up and continue to speak up for the sake of all of us.”
