Daim lists 3 conditions for Pakatan to wrest control of Putrajaya

KUALA LUMPUR (May 3): Former finance minister Daim Zainuddin has listed three conditions for Pakatan Harapan to wrest control of Putrajaya.

Online portal Malaysiakini today said Daim, who reportedly had accurately predicted the outcomes of the 2008 and 2013 general elections, quoted Daim as saying: “I have three conditions: (First,) You must have good candidates with integrity, no corruption.

“Second, you must win the support of the rural folk, particularly the Felda settlers.

“And (thirdly) the youth, 40% of voters are between the ages of 20 and 40, whoever who can swing that (can win the elections).”

Malaysiakini reported that Daim told this to members of the press last night after giving a speech endorsing Harapan-PKR’s Lembah Pantai candidate Fahmi Fadzil in Kuala Lumpur.

The 80-year-old Daim joins a recent string of ex-ministers who have formally announced their support for Harapan, said Malaysiakini.

Since two days ago, he has formally joined Harapan’s campaign trail, publicly announcing his support for several candidates and even urging people to vote against BN-Umno, the party he previously served as a treasurer for.

During Harapan chairperson Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s tenure as prime minister, Daim served as finance minister twice - once from 1984 to 1991, and again from 1999 to 2001.
