Respect the democratic process, IGP urges all parties

KUALA LUMPUR: All parties should accept the democratic process without resorting to creating unharmonious situations within society during the transition in the government's leadership, says Tan Sri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani.

The Inspector-General of Police congratulated Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim on becoming the country's 10th Prime Minister and said stern action will be taken against any irresponsible party who resorted to provocation as well as those who raised racial or religious issues.

"We urge the people not to organise any rally or procession connected to politics in open areas, for the sake of public order and safety.

"Social media users are also advised to refrain from posting anything that could cause public concern," he said in a statement on Thursday (Nov 24).

The police remained committed in safeguarding the country for the benefit of all Malaysians, he said.

"We will ensure that the level of security and public order is preserved under the administration of the new Prime Minister," he said.
