Under threat Zuraida defensive against opposition
The Housing and Local Government Minister has ordered government oppositions to halt fighting over power during a pandemic crisis on Wednesday (Aug 11).
Datuk Zuraida Kamaruddin said that the Malaysian citizens have grown tired of the opposition’s endless politicking and claims about Parliament numbers.
She noted that there is pressure for Parliament to host the September vote of confidence, in the thick of the Prime Minister losing his majority.
But in her statement, she said, “We urge everyone to let the government carry on with their mandated job to serve the rakyat, fight the pandemic, and help the economy recover,” she said in a statement today.
“We welcome constructive ideas and suggestions, not endless disruptive booing and partisan attacks that do not help the rakyat.”
She insisted that the real enemy was an invisible. Her comments fall in line after weeks of the opposition saying they have the majority.
In addition, more than 13 UMNO members withdrew from the Perikatan government.
The former Pakatan Harapan MP added that although they claim the PM has lost the majority, not one from the opposition can agree on a single candidate to lead.
She said it reflects the infighting, disunity and bickering of the bloc.
