PETALING JAYA: MCA fully respects and supports the decision by the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah that there is no need to declare a state of Emergency in the country for the time being.

The decision was reached after discussions with the Malay Rulers, and upon observing the situation in the country, whereby it needs to be well received by all layers of society, said the party in a press statement on Monday (Oct 26).

MCA also welcomes His Majesty’s decree, reminding all politicians to immediately cease all forms of politicking that could disrupt the stability of the nation’s government, besides stressing that Budget 2021 which is to be tabled in Parliament, is very important for the rakyat in dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic and enabling the recovery of the national economy.

"In this regard, MCA calls upon the rakyat, irrespective of race, religion or political affiliation, to uphold the decree by His Majesty, the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong and unite in the battle against the Covid-19 pandemic and revive the country’s economy for the wellbeing of the rakyat and the country as a whole," said the statement.
