KUALA LUMPUR – Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin appeals to set up a bipartisan government to bring the country out of the current crisis.
He said, the government will invite all political party leaders to discuss about the suggestion next week.
“I will issue an official invitation to all political party leaders to attend this discussion. I am ready to listen to their opinion on this proposal,” he said in his special address today.
According to him, the measure is taken as none of the Members of Parliament (MPs) can prove that they have the majority support to enable them to be appointed as the new Prime Minister.
If the bipartisan cooperation is reached, he will call for a special Dewan Rakyat sitting to table a confidence motion.
“I give you my guarantee that I will take honourable and constitutional actions in resolving the current political crisis.
“My priority is to ensure that the government continues to function well in overcoming the pandemic and allow the country to recover,” he said.
He also said that he has vowed to ensure that the mandate is returned to the people, to choose a new government in the future.
“I have no intention to hang on to power.
“In this situation, it is appropriate for us to return the mandate to the people, to choose a new government when the time is right.
“Therefore, depending on the pandemic situation, I vow that the GE15 will be held latest by the end of July next year,” he said.
“Just like you, I have a responsibility not to allow the kleptocrats to rule if this political crisis is not resolved immediately,” he said. –MalaysiaGazette
