Did you actually read the MoU, Fahmi asks Nur Jazlan


PKR information chief Fahmi Fadzil quotes several sections of the MoU to contradict Johor Umno deputy chief Nur Jazlan Mohamed’s comments.

PETALING JAYA: A PKR leader has questioned whether Johor Umno deputy chief Nur Jazlan Mohamed had even read the political memorandum of understanding when alleging that July 31 was the last day of the agreement.

“How is he supposed to be a leader when he could not understand a basic thing?” said Fahmi Fadzil, PKR’s information chief. “Did he not read the (MoU) in full, or is he not understanding it on purpose due to certain reasons?”

Fahmi said the MoU, signed between Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob and Pakatan Harapan (PH) leaders last year, said it would remain in effect until the day Parliament is dissolved.

The MoU also stated the government agreed not to propose dissolution of Parliament before July 31, Fahmi said.

Nur Jazlan had said in a Facebook posting today that July 31 was the last day of the agreement. He said the MoU was seen as a “political ceasefire” between both sides, it had not stopped PH from making attacks on Ismail’s government.

However, Fahmi said the MoU stated that the agreement would not affect the opposition’s role in providing checks and balances on the government as well as ensuring that Putrajaya will be accountable to the Parliament and to the rakyat.

The agreement was signed on Sept 13 last year. Parliament is yet to be dissolved despite the fact that Ismail has been bombarded with calls for dissolution by his colleagues from Umno, notably those who are aligned with party president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Four days ago, Ismail was reported as saying that the MoU with PH stays until the Parliament is dissolved. - FMT
