Dissolution thwarts disharmony in government

PRIME Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob says the dissolution of the Parliament is to avoid disharmony among the various party in the central administration after 12 ministers showed their disrespect for The King by sending His Highness protest letters.

He says the decision to dissolve the Parliament has also taken into consideration their disrespect for the premier since he was appointed with full consent of His Majesty.

“So, it put a stop to all such nonsense,” he said.

Ismail who is also Umno vice-president dissolved the 14th Parliament on October 10 to pave the way for the 15th general election.

In a media statement issued by the National Palace yesterday, The King was frustrated and tormented by the current political happenings.

“Of late, some ministers publicly criticised the government’s policy. To an extent, the chairman of Perikatan Nasional Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin had even declared Barisan Nasional as the main enemy when PN also sits in the government.

“Muhyiddin as the chairman of the National Recovery Council used to say that the Parliament must be dissolved because the government has failed in its economic management.”

He also says Malaysia needs a stable government, and for that reason the general election will be the ultimate answer.
