KUALA LUMPUR: Communications and Multimedia Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa (pic) has asked all parties to refer to Articles 2.1 and 3.1 in the government's memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Pakatan Harapan on Transformation and Political Stability so as to avoid any confusion about its expiry date.

In a Facebook post on Saturday (June 4), Annuar attached several pages of the MOU signed on Sept 13, 2021, to explain further his recent statement that it had no expiration date.

"To those who like to write but are lazy to read, research or who may deliberately want to confuse facts, I am posting official documents or copies of the MOU between the government and Pakatan.

"Please go through Articles 2 and 3 of the MOU. I was one of those representing the Government during the signing," he said.

Article 2.1 states: "This Memorandum of Understanding shall be effective from the date this Agreement is signed and shall apply until the dissolution of the 14th Parliament of Malaysia" while Article 3.1 states: "The Government agrees not to propose the dissolution of Parliament before July 31, 2022".

The Ketereh MP was responding to comments by several Umno leaders who disputed his statement in Kota Kinabalu recently.

Annuar had said that the MOU has no expiry date and it provides backing for Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob until Parliament is dissolved.

The Federal Government and Pakatan had inked the MOU, covering six initiatives, to form a bipartisan partnership in line with the spirit of Malaysian Family. – Bernama
