TAN SRI Muhyiddin Yassin has totally missed the main reason behind the call for his resignation.

According to Chong Chieng Jen, the main reason is his failure and that of his cabinet’s to properly manage the Covid-19 pandemic, causing 1,342,215 Covid cases and 11,691 deaths to-date and ruinning our country’s economy.

“To put it simply, people have totally given up any hope that the PN Government can save the country and the people. That is why most Malaysians now want a new Prime Minister and cabinet to run this country.

“With or without Muhyiddin’s promises announced yesterday, the proposed seven agenda of reforms will still come through as democracy in our country progresses and matures. However, as of now, the most important agenda for the country is to properly manage the Covid-19 pandemic, to reduce the infection rate and death cases and to revive our economy,” said the Sarawak DAP chief.

Therefore, Chong said the most urgent thing to do now is replace the present incompetent Prime Minister and cabinet with those who are able to properly manage the current crisis.

Top priority should be the lives of the people, the sufferings caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the hunger due to lack of income and the businesses at the brink of closing down cannot wait any longer.

“By making such proposals in the hope of clinging to power instead of formulating new policies to address the above problems faced by the people daily, it is clear that this PN Government is putting the interest of holding on to power above the interest of the people.

“With such a selfish and incompetent government, how can one expect a responsible opposition to give it the lifeline to continue its destruction of people’s lives and country’s economy?,” he asked.
