Deal between govt and opposition for good of nation


KUCHING: The recent memorandum of understanding (MoU) for political transformation and stability between the federal government and Pakatan Harapan (PH) does not mean that either side had mengaku kalah (admit defeat).

Federal Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Parliament and Law) Datuk Seri Dr Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar stressed that the agreement instead was a commitment towards improving the existing system for the sake of the nation’s future.

“We must remember, the opposition is not a political enemy but a strategic partner in the government who are fighting together to provide the best service to the people,” he said in a Facebook post on Thursday (Sept 16).

Wan Junaidi, who is also the Santubong MP, earlier participated in a discussion organised by the Asian Strategy and Leadership Institute.

Among the discussion was on the said MoU, and he said: “Most MPs (from both sides) agreed and are excited about this agreement.”

“This is so that for the time being we can put aside political differences and focus specifically on political stability and economic recovery of the country,” he added.

In another post, Wan Junaidi said he would focus on matters that are easy to achieve first.

“This is because many reforms require constitutional amendments that will likely take some time.”

He said that the proposals such as anti-party hopping laws, prime ministerial term limits and Undi18 could be implemented first.
