KUCHING, July 31: GPS should sever ties with the Perikatan Nasional (PN) government to demonstrate that the coalition is not colluding with the government to mislead the Dewan Rakyat.

This is the views of Parti Keadilan (PKR) Sarawak in responding to Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS)’s recent statement indicating that the coalition is fully supportive of the Constitutional Monarchy System following a royal statement by the King who expressed disappointment over the Cabinet’s decision to revoke the Emergency Ordinances without his consent which caused an uproar in Parliament on Thursday.

PKR Sarawak secretary Joshua Jabeng said that the stand of GPS which appeared to be against the disobedience of Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin who leads the PN government against the Agong is a stark contrast with the official stand of GPS.

“If true, why did GPS not immediately exit from the government that has already failed?

“The actions of the PN government including GPS which has invited the wrath of the King is a black spot in the history and the people of Sarawak do not want to be involved.

“As such, it is mandatory for GPS to make a factual statement that it is not colluding with the government to mislead the Dewan Rakyat,” he said in a statement today.

While Malaysia is still being hit by various crises including a constitutional crisis, Joshua pointed out that a conflicting statement by the GPS will only further confuse the people who are longing to see a recovery.

He added that the most appropriate action is to help return the people’s mandate which only the Pakatan Harapan (PH) can do to save the country and not let the people continue to suffer.

Meanwhile, the Keadilan Sarawak Youth (AMK) has also yesterday lodged police reports against Prime Minister, de facto Law Minister Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan and Attorney-General Tan Sri Idris Harun in regards to their disobedience against the Agong and issuance of statement that confused the Dewan Rakyat.

The reports were lodged in several areas with Kuching by AMK Sarawak chief Saifunnizam Sam together with PKR Sarawak Women secretary Cherish Ng as well as AMK committee members Murnie Hidayah and Mohd Firman Abdullah.

In Miri, the report was lodged by AMK Sarawak secretary Norhafizah Joharie, while in Mukah by its branch youth chief Mohd Arwin Lim.

In a statement, the AMK Sarawak viewed that the actions by Muhyiddin and Takiyuddin was outrageous and contradicted Article 150 of the Federal Constitution.

“Moreover, such actions could clearly be detrimental to parliamentary democracy and affect public order.

“As such, the AMK Sarawak demand that the Prime Minister, de facto Law Minister, Attorney-General and the whole Cabinet resign responsibly and an investigation into the matter be conducted,” said the statement today.— DayakDaily
