MP SPEAKS | Irresponsible for PM to ignore Covid-19 health concerns

Lim Guan Eng

Published

MP SPEAKS | Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin has exposed his desperation for his fractious and fragmented Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS), comprising Perikatan Nasional (PN)-BN-PBS alliance, to win the coming Sabah state election by promising a snap general election if they succeed.

For Muhyiddin to ignore Covid-19 health concerns and use a snap general election as election bait, to induce Umno to work harder to secure a victory in the Sabah state election, is irresponsible and un-prime ministerial.

The prime minister should not be putting public interest and safety at risk merely to serve his political interest. There is no need to dissolve Parliament and call for a snap election when the opposition bloc comprising of 109 MPs do not want to endanger public health and safety due to the emerging rise in the number of Covid-19 cases.

Many countries in the world, the latest being Britain, are facing a second wave of Covid-19 infections and Malaysia could be similarly affected.
