For the opposition, PM Muhyiddin is always wrong

When Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin advised the King to declare a state of emergency to limit movements and curb the spread of COVID-19 infection in the community, opposition leaders did not accept it.

Parti Keadilan Rakyat Advisory Council chairman Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim had said that Muhyiddin purposely did this to hide behind the emergency so that the Parliament would not be able to table a vote of no confidence against him.

Anwar also claimed that he had  members of parliament (MPs) supporting him. But when he was asked to prove that he had the number, he remained quiet until today.

The Malaysians are not easily swayed by Anwar’s political strategies as they are educated, very much matured in politics and aware of the current situation in the country.

How could Anwar guarantees that he will be the next Prime Minister as he has not proven that he has the number of MPs supporting him.
Anwar had hoped that UMNO MPs would withdraw support from Muhyiddin and join him but until today, they are still supporting Muhyiddin.

Since May 2018 till the fall of Pakatan Harapan government in March 2020, Anwar had been telling the people that he was the PM in waiting. The whole world thought he was going to be the next prime minister, claiming that former Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad was going to pass the baton to him. At the end of the day, Dr. Mahathir said Anwar could not be the Prime Minister because he does not have the Malays’ support.

Rumours have been going around alleging that Anwar is trying to get support from former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib TunRazak and other UMNO leaders to help him become the PM.

Since Muhyiddin took to power, he has never criticised any party leader from either opposition or government even though sometimes they “attack” him openly.

On the other hand, PKR and DAP leaders will not sit comfortably without criticizing Muhyiddin. They claimed that Muhyiddin government’s strategy to curb Covid-19 has not shown positive results as planned and the state of emergency has not curbed the spread of the corona virus.

Recently they accused Muhyiddin of being impolite and did not respect the Agong’s order to reconvene the Parliament seating soonest possible.
And when Muhyiddin announced that the Parliamentary sessions will start on 26 July, Anwar said it is a “scam” and does not allow debate.

“This parliamentary session is a ‘scam’,” he had said in a posting on his Facebook.

He said this was because the meeting as stated by the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) yesterday was against its purpose.

“Parliamentary sessions are always to ensure that the government is governed in accordance with the rules of good governance so that there is no abuse of power and there is a check and balance.

“But what he (Muhyiddin) is trying to do is a form of fraud because it shortens the session, expedites the passage of several ordinances including the Emergency Ordinance and there is no indication that there will be an open debate,” the PKR leader said.

It was understood that Anwar and DAP leaders have been championing democracy and freedom of speech and equality as their political goals. But yet, when they took over the government in 2018-2020 nothing much changed.

Najib had said in his Facebook that only during his reign Malaysia became a great nation, businesses were flourishing and democracy prevailed, a sarcastical criticism of both former PH government and current PN government for having failed to maintain the high standard of Malaysia.

But what Muhyiddin inherited is a weak government and in a difficult time when the whole world is struggling to survive from the fatal COVID-19 pandemic.
