Malaysia must not be held ransomed by irresponsible political leaders: MP Kit Siang

Media Statement by DAP MP for Iskandar Puteri Lim Kit Siang in Kuala Lumpur on Friday, 28th February 2020:

Height of irresponsibility to create a political crisis in Malaysia  in the midst of a global coronavirus crisis

It is the height of irresponsibility to create a political crisis in Malaysia  in the midst of a global coronavirus crisis.
The World Health Organsiation head Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus has warned that coronavirus outbreak has reached a “decisive point” and has “pandemic potential” as countries around the world battle to prevent the virus spreading further.

For a second day, more cases have been reported outside than inside China.

Iran and Italy have become major centres of infection, with people travelling from there spreading the virus further afield.

Several high-profile Iranian officials have become infected, the latest being Vice-President for Women and Family Affairs Masoumeh Ebtekar.

But in Malaysia, a political crisis had been created for a week by irresponsible political leaders to distract attention from the global coronavirus crisis.

The artificial political crisis must be resolved in the shortest time possible, and those responsible for creating the political crisis in the midst of an ongoing global coronavirus crisis must be condemned by all Malaysians.

The nation must not be held to ransom by irresponsible political leaders who are prepared to risk great damages to the country just to play their political games.

The time to work for the formation of a national unity government must start with the restoration of the Pakatan Harapan government, and the support of all for the Pakatan Harapan mandate for a New Malaysia to reset nation-building policies for Malaysia to return to the founding principles of the Malaysian Constitution and Rukunegara to ensure unity, justice, freedom, excellence and integrity in Malaysia, where there is separation of powers, the rule of law, public integrity and respect for human rights and to fulfil the five pillar-promises towards the building of a New Malaysia, viz:

·         Reduce the people’s burden;
·         Institutional and political reforms;
·         Spur sustainable and equitable economic growth;
·         Return Sabah and Sarawak to the status accorded in Malaysia Agreement 1963; and
·         Create a Malaysia that is inclusive, moderate and respected globally.

民主行动党依斯干达公主城国会议员林吉祥于2020年2月28日(星期五)在吉隆坡发布的媒体文告:

全球面对冠状病毒危机的当儿,在马来西亚制造政治危机是极为不负责任的举动。

世界卫生组织总干事谭德塞博士警告,冠状病毒的爆发已来到“决定性的时刻”,并具有“大流行的可能性”,而世界各国正奋力防止病毒进一步传播。

国外确证的病例已经连续两天比中国国内多。

伊朗和意大利已成为主要的感染中心,从那里旅行的人将病毒传播到更远的地方。

几位备受瞩目的伊朗官员感染了病毒最新的一位是负责妇女和家庭事务的副总统玛苏梅·埃特卡尔

可是在马来西亚,不负责任的政治领袖制造了一周的政治危机,分散了对全球冠状病毒危机的关注。

人为的政治危机必须在最短的时间内解决,而那些在全球冠状病毒危机持续中制造政治危机的人,必须受到所有马来西亚人民的谴责。

现在是为组织全民团结政府而努力的时刻,首先就是要恢复希望联盟政府,全面支持希望联盟为建立新马来西亚所获得的委托,以便重新设定建国政策,使马来西亚重返《马来西亚宪法》和《国家原则》的根本原则。我们要保障马来西亚的团结、公正、自由、卓越和廉正,拥有三权分立、法治,公共廉正和尊重人权,并实现为建立新马来西亚的五个基本承诺:

· 减轻人民负担;

· 体制和政治改革;

· 促进永续和公平的经济增长;

· 根据《1963年马来西亚协议》,恢复沙巴和砂拉越的地位;以及

· 建立包容、中庸并受全球尊重的马来西亚。

林吉祥
