Speaking at a press conference today, Dr Mahathir said there were videos of civil servants wearing BN’s signature blue uniforms and actively campaigning for the coalition ahead of the 14th general election.
“We came to know that many government officers campaigned for BN in the 14th general election. We don’t know whether they were forced to it or did it voluntarily, but we are sceptical of their loyalty.
“We are not sure if they are loyal to the old BN government or the current government. This will disrupt the PH government because we want to administer the country according to our methods and manifesto,” said Dr Mahathir.
If the Civil Service permits civil servants to join political parties and participate in politics, then civil servants can join any party they like including PSM or PRM. And we can expect them to campaign for this or that party.
They must be loyal to THE ruling government but who is to say they must be loyal specifically to Pakatan. Podah.
And that's why the Armed Forces doe NOT permit its personnel to participate in politics. Their personnel can vote but cannot actively participate in political matters nor join any political party.
