GOVERNMENT ministers will be meeting Opposition MPs every fortnight to work together for a smooth implementation of the national political transformations, including strengthening parliamentary institutions, says Communications and Multimedia Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa.
He added this was in line with pledges made by the government in the memorandum of understanding (MOU) it signed with the Opposition last month.
“In line with the government’s promise, we will sit at the same table with representatives from Pakatan Harapan every two weeks in order to ensure the transformation plan and political stability run smoothly.
“There were also discussions on issues such as administration transformation and parliamentary reforms,” he posted on Facebook after meeting with Opposition MPs in Parliament House yesterday.
Annuar also posted a picture of the meeting that was attended by Finance Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Abdul Aziz, Home Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Dr Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar and Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin.Pakatan was represented by Puchong MP Gobind Singh Deo and Seremban MP Anthony Loke from DAP, PKR’s Lembah Pantai MP Fahmi Fadzil and Kulim bandar Baharu MP Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail.
The government and the Opposition signed an MOU on political transformation and stability on Sept 13, paving the way for historic bipartisanship.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the bipartisan cooperation was in line with the Royal Decree by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong for political leaders to set aside politics and focus on battling the Covid-19 pandemic.
