KUCHING, July 9: Dark clouds once again hover over Malaysia as the simmering political crisis threatens further instability and division that could cause more pain and suffering on the people.
Political observer Dato Peter Minos, in highlighting this, said that the current political crisis in the country is making people sick and fed up.
“It is creating fear that we may be entering a darker and worse time with more pain and suffering for us all,” he said in a statement today in response to United Malays National Organisation (Umno)’s withdrawal from Perikatan Nasional (PN) announced late Wednesday.
However, Minos, who is also Kota Samarahan Municipal Council (MPKS) chairman, remained optimistic that the wise Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and the PN government would somehow prevail.
“They will come out better and fitter than the bad politicians who precipitated the current crisis. The plot will fail and they will pay the price dearly,” he added.
In the meantime, he emphasised that it is more important to continue giving full support to the government’s anti-Covid-19 war especially the ongoing vaccination drive and economic recovery efforts.
“At the same time, let’s pray for the safety and happiness of our nation,” he said.
Meanwhile, Umno president Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi made the sudden announcement in a Facebook live broadcast after the party’s Supreme Council meeting that lasted for four hours on Wednesday.
It came barely hours after Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin announced the appointment of Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob and Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein as deputy prime minister and senior minister, respectively.
Zahid also called on Muhyiddin to step down from his post to allow for the appointment of a temporary prime minister who will focus on the people’s wellbeing, address the Covid-19 pandemic and ensure that the vaccination process is expedited.— DayakDaily
