In September 2016, Tun M had formed PPBM alongside with Muhyiddin Yassin as President and Mukhriz Mahathir as the party’s Deputy President.
Moving forward to 2019, Mukhriz appears on the 4th spot in the topic of “PPBM”, with 299 statements in the past month.
This shows that he is active in talking about matters relating to his party.
However, if we look at the influencer’s list of Pakatan Harapan in the same period of time, Mukhriz is nowhere in sight.
In comparison, PKR has all their top leaders as influencers in the topic of “Pakatan Harapan” – Anwar Ibrahim, Azmin Ali and Wan Azizah.
Top issues on Mukhriz reveal that he has been active in talking about Kedah affairs in the past month. Additionally, he is also active in defending PH’s loss in the recent Semenyih by-election. However, no top issues look at Mukhriz verbalizing about national issues like – toll and cost of living.
Looking at Mukhriz movement in the political scene, it looks like he is more active in party and state affairs as compared to at the national level. Could it be that he purposely appears less vocal in national issues to avoid speculations of nepotism?
