PETALING JAYA: All forms of provocation and attempts to disrupt political stability in the country must be stopped, says Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) Srikandi.
Its chief Datuk Seri Rina Harun said the party's women wing would stand firmly with Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin to face the 15th general election and contest in all seats if Umno does not want to be tolerant.
"To fight the still raging Covid-19 pandemic, we have to be united, regardless of political ideology, and that focus must be given to the government’s efforts in creating an 'immunity cluster' through the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme," she said in a statement on Monday (March 29).
On Sunday (March 28), the Umno General Assembly 2020 gave its supreme council the mandate to withdraw support for the Perikatan Nasional government at any time it sees fit.
Rina said Bersatu's women wing upholds the principles of its party's struggle, which always prioritises unity and harmony among communities of different races and religion, upholds political stability and national security, as well as drives sustainable economic development for the benefit of the people and the country.
"When the country was hit by the Covid-19 pandemic crisis, I believe that healthy politics - the creation of peace and harmony - is important in ensuring that people are peaceful and economic stability is preserved.
"I believe that people's lives in this country have been badly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. As such, as a politician that has been given the mandate by the people, all Srikandi members and I will always listen to their grievances at the grassroots level and not to add to their people's troubles," she said.
Rina said the Perikatan government under the leadership of Muhyiddin, who is also Bersatu president, will continue to be committed to giving its full focus on the safety of the people, public health and economic growth towards a prosperous Malaysia.
"This is the time to put the interests of the people first, especially in implementing the various economic stimulus packages that have been announced for the welfare of the people," she said, pointing to examples such as financial aid initiatives like Prihatin, Penjana, Permai, and Pemerkasa.
