Height of irresponsibility to create a political crisis in Malaysia in the midst of a global coronavirus crisis

It is the height of irresponsibility to create a political crisis in Malaysia in the midst of a global coronavirus crisis.

The World Health Organsiation head Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus has warned that coronavirus outbreak has reached a “decisive point” and has “pandemic potential” as countries around the world battle to prevent the virus spreading further.

For a second day, more cases have been reported outside than inside China.

Iran and Italy have become major centres of infection, with people travelling from there spreading the virus further afield.

Several high-profile Iranian officials have become infected, the latest being Vice-President for Women and Family Affairs Masoumeh Ebtekar.

But in Malaysia, a political crisis had been created for a week by irresponsible political leaders to distract attention from the global coronavirus crisis.

The artificial political crisis must be resolved in the shortest time possible, and those responsible for creating the political crisis in the midst of an ongoing global coronavirus crisis must be condemned by all Malaysians.

The nation must not be held to ransom by irresponsible political leaders who are prepared to risk great damages to the country just to play their political games.

The time to work for the formation of a national unity government must start with the restoration of the Pakatan Harapan government, and the support of all for the Pakatan Harapan mandate for a New Malaysia to reset nation-building policies for Malaysia to return to the founding principles of the Malaysian Constitution and Rukunegara to ensure unity, justice, freedom, excellence and integrity in Malaysia, where there is separation of powers, the rule of law, public integrity and respect for human rights and to fulfil the five pillar-promises towards the building of a New Malaysia, viz:

· Reduce the people’s burden;

· Institutional and political reforms;

· Spur sustainable and equitable economic growth;

· Return Sabah and Sarawak to the status accorded in Malaysia Agreement 1963; and

· Create a Malaysia that is inclusive, moderate and respected globally.

    The irresponsibility of Malay parties frankly is still shocking. They are lying, perpetuating myths told for decades when the difficult job of saving the country is not even half way there, will at least hurt badly if not done or worst certain to destroy us all..

    Seriously, the difference between Anwar administration and Mahathir administration is worth the destruction or at least malaise of the nation? “Its racism. Pure evil

    Malaysia have a long even shocking, history of irresponsible political leaders. Agree with this statement. So stupid wannabe bigwigs like PKR founder Syed Husin Ali, Mazlee’s aide and others from PKR, Bersatu, DAP who want to get their names in the news, learn your lessons, keep quiet if you want PH to remain intact and united. The Covid-19 cases are growing in Malaysia, Case 26 has infected 7 and more, and question is how many more will be infected from visitors, malaysians returning from overseas, etc. The virus does not respect borders, families, friends, colleagues, politicians and supporters.

    I am glad that Mahatir is gone. I hope Anwar, too, rides into the sunset. We will take care of Azmin and the turncoat frogs later.
