KUCHING, May 17: Parti Bumi Kenyalang (PBK) is calling on all the Pakatan Harapan (PH) MPs to resign after the Dewan Rakyat one-day sitting tomorrow (May 18).
Its president Voon Lee Shan believed their resignation will be a sign of protest and non-recognition against Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and the Pakatan Nasional (PN) government.
“PH must play its cards well and should not do injustice to be in the opposition when the mandate of the people was to topple the (former) Barisan Nasional (BN) government and to get them rule the country.
“If PH MPs all resign, let us see how PN is going to rule and be respected by investors and neighbouring countries if Parliament is not dissolved.
“PN government cannot say that this is hijacking by PH because PN themselves came from the backdoor to form the government to the anger of citizens.
“If PH delays to resign en bloc, PH will have no chance to pull down PN government because by the next sitting, PN government will have more than enough seats to control Parliament,” Voon said in a statement.
Voon noted that PH has claimed to have the numbers of MP’s support to unseat Muhyiddin by throwing a vote on non-confidence against him.
He opined that if PH truly has the numbers, there is no need to throw a vote of non confidence against the prime minister to cause his government to collapse.
Thus, he said PH MPs should all resign en bloc after the address by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah during the Dewan Rakyat sitting tomorrow.
Voon opined that their resignation will cause the collapse of PN government.
To show respect to the King and Parliament as an institution, it is suggested that PH MPs allow the sitting of Parliament to proceed and after the King’s address, to resign en bloc immediately.
He believed the King may be left with no choice, but to dissolve the Parliament to pave ways for fresh general elections.
Voon believed the resignation of PH MPs should be the best solution to solve the current political stalemate in Malaysia. – DayakDaily
