All quartres urged to heed advice of YDP Agong: Focus on combating Covid-19 pandemic & boosting the economy
MCA calls upon all quartres, irrespective of political affiliation to heed the decree of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, focus on combating the Covid-19 pandemic for the sake of the rakyat’s health and safety, and the country's wellbeing, and to avoid plunging the country into a political crisis.
As the third wave of the contagion is spreading, and as the economy continues to be sluggish, whilst people’s lives have grown increasingly difficult, the government, the ruling and Opposition parties should take every concerted effort to overcome the outbreak and revive the economy to enable the rakyat to overcome difficulties.
Therefore, maintaining political stability must be the responsibility of all political parties and politicians to avoid a recurrence of political uncertainties and unstable torrents, which will only aggravate the outbreak and economic situation and constrain people further into dire straits.
MCA reiterates our party’s position that we will continue to support the Perikatan Nasional government led by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin. We will assist the government to fight the Covid-19 pandemic, reinvigorate the economy to preserve the foundation of our nation’s economy and people’s livelihoods.
