Anwar says met Muhyiddin to talk about Covid-19 crisis, insists on transparency

(MMO) – PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said today he called on Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin at the latter’s office to talk about the Covid-19 crisis.

According to Anwar, in the 45-minute meeting this afternoon, both of them spoke about the government’s effort to contain the outbreak including economic stimulus packages to cushion the impact to Malaysians economy.

“I also raised concerns about the need for transparency in the delivery of information and enhanced testing capabilities.

“The proposed stimulus package is also welcome, but it must be ensured that its effectiveness is not politicised at the grassroots level,” Anwar said in a statement.

Anwar also said both him and Muhyiddin also touched on the Parliament seating on May 18 as well as problems regarding Covid-19

“I will hold further discussions with colleagues in Pakatan Harapan and the opposition, and will present their views back to him,” he said, referring to Muhyiddin.

Earlier today, in his daily Facebook Live session Anwar assured the Perikatan Nasional administration that the issue of a no-confidence vote will not arise if a special parliamentary session is convened to debate the country’s ongoing Covid-19 measures.

He said it is more important to focus on the economic and social impact that the pandemic will have on the nation, rather than debate political matters.
