‘Perikatan MPs to act as watchdogs’

Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan

KOTA BARU: Perikatan Nasional will appoint its MPs as watchdogs of ministries in Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s administration to ensure the coalition becomes a constructive and effective opposition, says Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan.

He said the 73 MPs in Perikatan would play the role of “check and balance” for the government.

“We have 73 MPs ... so we can have three MPs in charge of a ministry,” he said at a thanksgiving ceremony here yesterday, reported Bernama.

“We monitor and will also give suggestions for improvement as we have been in the government before,” he added.

Takiyuddin, who is PAS secretary-general, said Perikatan would also continue to urge the government under Anwar’s administration to take into account the concept of federalism, by not leaving out development at the state level.
