“Anwar can’t afford a rat in the pack: Rafizi must maintain cabinet solidarity or resign”
COLLECTIVE Cabinet responsibility is a constitutional convention in parliamentary systems where members of the cabinet must publicly support all governmental decisions made in cabinet, even if they do not privately agree with them.
(Focus Malaysia) – This almost certainly includes not leaking government information to others, which may allow for that information to become public knowledge, and/or identifying either directly or indirectly the Cabinet minister who disagrees with a government action, decision or policy.
It has become quite evident that there is already one senior minister who is doing just that. Leaking information that he doesn’t agree with. This information is almost freely flowing through some of the close knit WhatsApps groups around the nation.
We can see that Economy Minister Rafizi Ramli is being side-lined in Prime Minister (PM) Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s administration. We can also see that Anwar and Rafizi’s rift is affecting the unity government. This is definitely making Anwar’s job as PM much harder.
Rafizi must either put up or shut up and tow the government line. This is disloyalty in the extreme and must stop.
