Bersatu’s women’s wing today said it would stand with Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin in facing the 15th general election, adding that it is prepared to contest all seats if Umno does not accept it.
Its chief Rina Harun said healthy politics and the creation of a sense of peace and harmony for the people are important in ensuring public order and economic stability, especially as the country is facing the threats brought on by the global coronavirus pandemic.
“I believe that people’s livelihoods have been very affected by Covid-19. Therefore, as an elected representative, I and all members of Bersatu’s women’s wing will continue to listen to the people’s grievances at the grassroots and will not add to the problems.
“This is the time to put the people first, especially in the implementation of the various economic stimulus initiatives announced for the people’s wellbeing, such as the Prihatin Rakyat Economic Stimulus Package (Prihatin), the National Economic Recovery Plan (Penjana), the Malaysian Economic and Rakyat’s Protection Assistance Package (Permai) and the Strategic Programme to Empower the People and Economy (Pemerkasa),” she said in a statement today.
She also said the wing would continue to uphold the party’s principles of prioritising unity and harmony among Malaysia’s multiracial and multi-religious communities, preserving political stability and national security, and steering the country towards sustainable economic growth.
She added that all forms of provocation and attempts to shake political stability should be stopped.
She also called on all quarters to stay united regardless of their political ideologies in fighting the Covid-19 pandemic, saying focus should be given to the government’s efforts to develop herd immunity through the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme.
