News | PH stays as opposition, no dissolution until July 31 next year
PETALING JAYA: Among the things agreed on between the government and Pakatan Harapan (PH) in their memorandum of understanding (MoU) includes that Parliament will not be dissolved until at least July 31 next year, according to PKR communications director Fahmi Fadzil.
In a Twitter post, the Lembah Pantai MP also said PH would remain the opposition despite the MoU signed with the government.
He said the focus of the agreement was: aid for the people, improving efforts to manage Covid-19, parliamentary reforms, the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63), and the independence of the judiciary.
When asked by a Twitter follower what would happen if there were no observable improvements on those matters, Fahmi said PH will then have the right to terminate the deal.
He said the full text of the agreement will be published at the Parliament website tomorrow.
Government and PH leaders signed the historic MoU on “political stability and transformation” earlier today.
Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the MoU would cover six areas: strengthening the plan to combat Covid-19, MA63, independence of the judiciary, parliamentary reforms, transformation of the government, and the formation of a steering committee for the MoU.
Those who were present during the signing of the MoU were Ismail, Dewan Negara president Rais Yatim, Dewan Rakyat Speaker Azhar Azizan Harun, and the PH signatories: PKR president Anwar Ibrahim, DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng, and Amanah president Mohamad Sabu.
Other MPs present during the signing were Annuar Musa (Ketereh), Loke Siew Fook (Seremban), Saifuddin Nasution Ismail (Kulim-Bandar Baharu) and Salahuddin Ayub (Pulai) along with Senator Donald Peter Mojuntin. – FMT
