Several political analysts have described the bipartisan relationship between government and opposition as matured.

Dr Jeniri Amir, the National Professors Council senior member, mentioned that signing the memorandum of understanding is a positive step because it enhances democracy for the good of the people in the long term.

He said, “This is a prerequisite for us to become a mature democracy, which is a win-win situation for all.”

Professor Dr. Sivamurugan Pandian from the University Sains Malaysia expresses it as a historical and would stabilise the nation’s political climate.

The prof said that it will allow for more maturity in Malaysian politics. It was of the utmost importance that it does mature during the stages of the National Recovery Plan.

But he reminded that the MoU should not be just a document signed as it needs to be acted upon immediately.

Former Deputy Speaker of Parliament had also commented that a bipartisan will bring a political ceasefire.

Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said on her Twitter wrote, “I fervently hope that this will not compromise MPs’ role in ensuring checks and balances. By the way, unfinished business from the last session is not good for business.”

Parliament had reconvened for the first time since a new Prime Minister was elected. Over the next 17 days, major reforms are set to be introduced for the sake of Malaysia.
