PETALING JAYA: The gesture by the Sultan of Johor to work out things is good but the Palace must also admit its mistakes and stop interfering with the affairs of the state government, says Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
“It is not good to see what is happening today,” said the Home Minister and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia president.
“As a Johorean, as a federal minister in the Cabinet, this does not put me at ease at all.
“We must be bold enough. The Sultan also has to agree that certain things have been done by him that created some feelings of uneasiness when it comes to matters of state.
“That has to stop. It is not that he cannot interfere in the management of the state, but interfering in the running of the governance of the state must not be continued.
“It is not personal. I suggest Johor Mentri Besar (Datuk Dr Sahruddin Jamal) and the state government discuss with him as to what needs to be done and what needs to be cleared so that once and for all, we work as Malaysians and things can be settled,” said Muhyiddin.
He was referring to the current situation where there have been allegations of interference in the Johor state government by the Palace, which goes against the Federal Constitution.
Muhyiddin was speaking to the media after chairing a Bersatu central committee meeting here Thursday (April 25) to discuss amendments to the party constitution.
