Non-Governmental Organisations and Civil Society Organisations from various backgrounds closely follow the latest political developments in the country.
The withdrawal of UMNO’s support for the PN Government has raised questions about the legitimacy of the current government. The incident generated political instability and undermined efforts to address the escalating Covid-19 pandemic health crisis, the economic crisis and the ensuing social crisis.
In a special press conference on Wednesday, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin was reported to have said that his position as Prime Minister would be determined in a motion of confidence in the Dewan Rakyat this September.
Taking into account the negative impact of political instability on the government’s efforts to address the country’s crises, Non-Governmental Organisations and Civil Society Organisations are of the view that the Dewan Rakyat Session should be held as soon as possible and not dragged until September. An immediate sitting is needed to prove the Prime Minister’s majority in Parliament.
It is feared that the delay in convening the Dewan Rakyat Session will drag the country into a more precarious situation, especially involving the lives, health and survival of Malaysians. The delay would lead to an unhealthy political situation, including party hopping practices as is common in this country. Such a situation should be avoided as it distracts the country’s leaders from dealing with the crises that are raging.
At the same time, Non-Governmental Organisations and Civil Society Organisations urge all parties, especially political party leaders and civil servants to put the interests of the country and the people first. Priority should be given to address the Covid-19 pandemic and economic conditions burdening the people to the point of affecting the well-being of family institutions and causing various psychological and social problems.
In this regard, Non-Governmental Organisations and Civil Society Organisations urge political leaders and parliamentarians across political parties to put aside political differences and work together to address the crises that have plagued the country.
Non-Governmental Organisations and Civil Society Organisations always strive to do the best for Malaysia and emphasise their readiness to work hand-in-hand with various parties to resolve the crises that are plaguing the country.
