Members of the Congress of Unions of Employees in the Public and Civil Services (Cuepacs ) have been told not to be involved in the Citizens' Declaration assembly scheduled to be held in Shah Alam on March 27.

Cuepacs president Azih Muda said the congress fully supported the leadership of Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak and did not agree with the assembly.

"We do not agree with the way things are being done by certain parties to topple the government. My advice to civil servants is not be among those involved," he told reporters in Johor Baru today.

"We serve the government and are not involved in political parties. We want civil servants to focus on their jobs and not to be influenced by sentiments like toppling the government," he said.

Azih said civil servants should be aware that their duties were to serve the government and ensure the economy of the government is stable and contribute to the prosperity of the people.

Earlier, Azih had attended a briefing on current issues by Cuepacs which was attended by about 200 civil servants.
