THE prime minister should stop his “frog-shopping” and do the rightful thing and resign, said DAP.
Michael Kong, the special assistant to Sarawak DAP chief, Chong Chieng Jen, said the people are tired of all the charades and political moves.
“What they voted for was for a Pakatan Harapan government with the promise of a new system of governance.
“It is time to give Malaysians that spark of joy and glimmer of renewed hope during these difficult and trying times through this selfless act. Since the support is clearly not there for PN, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin should man up and resign,” he said.
Give Malaysians that spark of joy and glimmer of renewed hope during these difficult and trying times through this selfless act. he said.
He said it would be interesting to note if the motions of confidence previously tabled by MPs would be given any priority when Parliament meets.
Based on previous comments from the Speaker and Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, he said there was not much hope of it happening soon.
“However, all hope is not lost. Since the withdrawal of support from Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz’s, the current PN government only has the support of 109 MPs.
“This is clearly not a majority. To hold on to power, Muhyiddin successfully persuaded the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong to declare a state of emergency which essentially suspended Parliament and any sort of check and balance,” he said.
Michael said that while the reasons for the emergency was to combat Covid-19 effectively, it was clear that this was not the real case.
“There were half-hearted MCO restrictions which were as good as having none. At the same time, Muhyiddin was not actively seeking a solution with his Ministry of Health to curb Covid-19.
“Instead, he had taken this time to participate in more politicking and this is evidenced with the support by Larry Sng (Julau MP) and Steven Choong (Tebrau MP),” he added.
