KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 28 — Lembah Pantai MP Fahmi Fadzil has today questioned the motive behind a survey conducted via five news organisations to commemorate the 100 days of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s administration.
The Communications and Digital minister said the survey by the social engagement centre O2 Malaysia had plenty of question marks surrounding it, pointing to its sample population and timing.
“When the article came out they said the survey was for 100 days but we haven’t even touched 100 days when it was published. The sample had too many men, 81 per cent men when it should be more to 31 to 41 per cent. Not only that, many experts are questioning its methodology.
“If the experts feel this way then we need to ask what the motive behind this and I feel this report is insincere and dishonest especially from a mainstream paper. I’ll be meeting them to ask them what the intention was, be it promotion or flare they trying to dupe the public,” he told reporters here.
The 100 days of the current administration is slated for March 4.
The survey had involved 35,077 respondents through five media outlets: Sinar Harian, Awani, The Star, Sin Chew and Malaysia Nanban.
