Failed politicians are the ones who should resign - Kit Siang tells Hadi


Failed politicians, not civil servants, are the ones who should resign.

This is according to Iskandar Puteri MP Lim Kit Siang who was responding to PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang who had asked civil servants who refuse to support the Perikatan Nasional government to resign.

"I do not agree with Hadi as I believe that it is the political leaders who have failed in their duties, like those in the bloated Muhyiddin cabinet who, in the national interest, should resign.

"I do not fault civil servants who are not prepared to see the Malaysian civil service deteriorate into a kakistocracy," Lim said in a statement today.

Last Sunday, Hadi said those who do not support the government of the day are morally bound to resign.

The Marang MP added that it was morally wrong for Pakatan Harapan supporters, who are now serving under the PN government, to follow the instructions of the previous government.

Lim said the flurried manner in which the nationwide third movement control order (MCO 3.0) was announced yesterday, less than a month after Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin assured there won't be one, was proof of Putrajaya's failure.

"There was no time to arrange for a live telecast by the prime minister, which must be a blessing in disguise as Muhyiddin cannot be unaware of the huge deficit in public trust and confidence in government’s decisions and announcements, particularly those relating to the Covid-19 pandemic.

"The decision of a national MCO 3.0 was the culmination of two days of dizzying confusion and chaos in the handling of the Covid-19 pandemic, with different ministries making confusing and conflicting statements about the meaning of MCO 3.0 and conditional MCO, causing hardships and sufferings to the people, particularly petty traders and SMEs (small and medium enterprises)," he added.

Lim said Malaysia was among the worse performing countries in the battle against Covid-19 in the region and warned that the country could become a "mini-India".

India is now recording the world's highest increase in new Covid-19 cases.

Yesterday, India added more than 366,000 new Covid-19 cases, more than 10 times Brazil's 34,162 new cases, which is in second place.

"Would Muhyiddin and his bloated cabinet accept responsibility for the worsening Covid-19 crisis in Malaysia?" Lim asked. - Mkini
