Pejuang will heed King’s advice, says Mahathir


PETALING JAYA: Parti Pejuang Tanah Air will heed the advice of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and ensure the country is stable politically, says its chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad (pic).

“The party will also cooperate in the country’s efforts to address the threat of Covid-19, ” he said.

In welcoming the King’s decision not to issue a proclamation of a state of emergency, Dr Mahathir said Pejuang also welcomed the Ruler’s advice for politicians to reduce politicking.

“This is not limited to opposition politicians only, but includes government politicians as well, ” he said in a statement yesterday.

Dr Mahathir expressed hope that the government and its politicians would end actions such as “removing politicians who do not support the government from posts and blocking allocations for elected representatives who do not support the government”.

“The government should also stop buying over supporters of opposition parties, forcing elections to be held and rejecting the registration of political parties like Pejuang, ” he said.

Dr Mahathir thanked the King for giving priority to the interests of the people by making a wise decision on rejecting the proposal to declare a state of emergency in the country.
