Bersatu today slammed PKR's Rafizi Ramli over his recent warning to top anti-graft buster Azam Baki, saying it showed that Pakatan Harapan (PH) had plans to misuse its power by going after civil servants who are carrying out their duties.

"This would have a negative impact on all government servants who have for so long done their jobs with integrity and without picking sides," said Bersatu deputy president Ahmad Faizal Azumu.

"Never in the history of the country has a leader of a main political coalition openly admitted to intending to misuse power in order to take revenge on public servants." 

Rafizi had earlier condemned what he called a raid by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) at Invoke Solutions, the PKR-linked company he heads.

MACC however clarified that its officers had visited Invoke to get documents related to its investigation of the company.

Last night, Rafizi said a PH government would "look for" Azam if it won the general election this weekend.

"Saturday we vote. After we win the elections, we will look for Azam Baki," he said. 

Faizal said Rafizi and other PH leaders appeared to believe that they were above the law and enforcement action, citing the move to drop charges against DAP leader Lim Guan Eng in 2018 after PH took over Putrajaya. 

He also said that PH's prime ministerial candidate Anwar Ibrahim should state his stand on the matter. 

"Will PH and Anwar take back the threats against the MACC chief commissioner and apologise to all civil servants?"
