Khaled: MPs are rational, Anwar will win confidence vote

KOTA TINGGI: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is expected to breeze past the motion of confidence which will be tabled Monday as MPs will act rationally to decide the fate of the country, an Umno leader says.

Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin said Malaysia now needed a stable government that could lead the country and its people forward.

“I believe all MPs will act rationally as there is no single coalition with a majority. The best thing we can do is to have a unity government as decreed by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong,” said the Umno vice-president.

He was speaking to reporters outside Felda Simpang Waha’s Masjid An-Nur after attending a thanksgiving ceremony and handing over of aid here.

Mohamed Khaled said the people were also tired of constant politicking.

“The time has now come for us to focus on administering and managing the country. If we have a strong government, there are so many things we can do not only for the people but also to put Malaysia on the right track,” he said.

The confidence vote will be one of the main items on the agenda during the first session of the first term of the 15th Parliament of Malaysia, scheduled to take place on Monday and Tuesday.

On a separate matter, Mohamed Khaled, who is also Higher Education Minister, said universities should look at ways they could contribute to the country.

“Universities should not just be chasing prestige but also make sure they are relevant to the country and community.”

He expressed the hope that leaders in universities, especially vice-chancellors, understand their responsibilities and roles well.

Mohamed Khaled also said he will be meeting with the top management of public and private universities nationwide.
