Muhyiddin: King will be advised to dissolve Parliament once Covid-19 pandemic ends

PUTRAJAYA: The Yang di-Pertuan Agong will be advised to dissolve Parliament as soon as the Covid-19 pandemic is over, says Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

” When the election is held, of course, we will leave it to the people to decide whether the Perikatan Nasional government should be re-elected or otherwise. You are free to choose and that is what democracy is all about,” he said.

Speaking at the “Setahun Malaysia Prihatin” address in conjunction with his first year in office, Muhyiddin said that the main focus of the government currently is to steer this country clear of the double whammy of health and economic crises until the pandemic ends.

“Until such time, my colleagues in the Cabinet and I will continue to carry out our duties and responsibilities to the best of our ability,” he said.
