IN light of the current political impasse affecting the Federal Government, Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Abang Openg said any decision taken by the Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) Government will be in the interest of the nation without sacrificing the rights and interest of Sarawak.

“The most important concern is that Malaysia must have political stability in order for the nation to move forward,” he said in a statement issued by Chief Minister’s Office today.

The country, he added, is faced with mounting economic problems arising from uncertainties including the Covid 19 outbreak that must be addressed in earnest and expeditiously,

The GPS Government will abide by any decision taken by His Majesty The Yang di-Pertuan Agong to solve the impasse based on Article 40 (2) (a) and (b), Article 43 (2) (a) and Article 55 (2) to be read together as enshrined in the Federal Constitution.

The state ruling coalition, which has 18 MPs, threw their full support behind Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to continue as Prime Minister.
