Muhyiddin: NRP's success needs support from all parties

PUTRAJAYA (Bernama): Achievements under the National Recovery Plan (NRP) to enable Malaysia to come out of the Covid-19 crisis will depend on the support of all parties as it is very much a "whole of nation approach" rather than a "whole of government" one, says Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

The Prime Minister said all parties including the government, the people, non-governmental organisations and other parties must work together and provide support for the success of the NRP, which is a transition strategy out of the health crisis that has hit the country since March last year.

He said the country should not be seen as having failed to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic as the government had just embarked on the NRP, adding that achievements will take time as the plan cannot yield results over just a week or a month.

"It takes a bit of a long painful recovery but I do believe and have confidence that we will survive the test.

"Give the government a chance for this," he said in a special interview with the media here Saturday (July 24).

On June 15, Muhyiddin announced the NRP, which has four phases that will transition in stages depending on three threshold indicators - Covid-19 cases, hospital admissions and vaccination rate. - Bernama
