Why Emergency and Recovery Plan not for debate?

KUALA LUMPUR, July 6 – It is very loud and clear that the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and the Malay Rulers wanted the Emergency Ordinance and the National Recovery Plan to enter debate at the Parliament.

However, Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin is trying to avoid it by saying the sitting will only give details of the Plan to MPs, says Youth Chief Dr Asyraf Wajdi Dusuki.

“If so, there is no necessary to call for the Parliament sitting, sufficient enough doing it on TV or school halls.

“The Parliament is a platform to debate any issue and for the MPs to vote any motion democratically.

“A matter so important such the Plan and its significant in managing the Covid-19 must be put on debate since it has brought about many unpleasant predicaments to the people, including their welfare, vaccination, the half-baked MCO and others,” he said in a FB posting.

He added it also applies for the Emergency Ordinance as per instructed by The King.

“Surely the people want their voice be heard. They also deserve every rights to follow the debate as it plays an important role as check-and-balance agent, including the need for the Ordinance,” he said.

The Movement feels that something awkward is taking place since the government is doing everything to politicise it and dodge the people.

“The latest PMO statement said it all. Are they launching a rebellion against The King?
