KUCHING: Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) supports the Yang di-Pertuan Agong’s decree that all politicians should stop politicking.

“GPS hopes that all parties heed the advice of His Majesty Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah, who always prioritises the people and the country,” said GPS chief whip Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof.

“GPS also acknowledges that the current government has successfully dealt with the pandemic ably and effectively; and strongly believes in the ability of the government under the leadership of Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin to continue to implement policies and enforcement actions to curb the spread of Covid-19,” he said in a statement today.

“The people should be the priority of all politicians in any situation, especially in the face of the Covid-19 challenge at this time.”

He added that GPS thanked the Agong regarding the importance of the 2021 National Budget, which would be tabled in the next parliamentary session, to deal with Covid-19.

“GPS thanks His Majesty (for declaring) that there was no need for a state of emergency to be declared.

“GPS also thank the wisdom of His Majesty and the Malay Kings who sat together in addressing the country’s political crisis.”.
