Better resign for spreading fake news, Guan Eng tells Umno leaders after law minister clarifies Sosma vote

The Opposition Pakatan Harapan (PH) coalition has been proven to be not an oathbreaker in its political truce with the government, DAP lawmaker Lim Guan Eng proclaimed today.

(MMO) – The Bagan MP said this has been proven by de facto Law Minister Datuk Seri Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar’s clarification that the Opposition bloc’s rejection of the government motion to extend a controversial clause in a security legislation does not nullify its memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

“It is very clear PH did not break the MoU, instead the Anti-Party Hopping Act will be tabled along with the amendment of the Federal Constitution on April 11, 2022.

“That is the main goal of the MoU. Well done!” Lim said in a statement on his Facebook account, congratulating the PH coalition.

The DAP is a component of the PH coalition, along with three other parties: PKR, Amanah and Sabah-based Upko.

Lim also called out several Umno senior leaders for accusing PH of breaching the MoU when the coalition voted against the extension of the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act 2012 (Sosma) in the Dewan Rakyat two days ago.

He named Umno president Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi who is also Bagan Datuk MP, deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan, secretary general Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan, and Communications and Multimedia Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa who is also the Federal Territories MP.

Lim noted all had pressured Ismail Sabri who is also Umno vice-president to call for Parliament’s dissolution to pave the way for the 15th general election.
