The civil service today said it would continue carrying out its duty to serve the people as laid out in the Federal Constitution following the resignation of Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin and his Cabinet.
Chief Secretary to the Government Mohd Zuki Ali said the civil service was committed to upholding the concept of neutrality and the government of the day based on the rule of law.
“The government machinery constantly strives to implement all policies that have been decided on to ensure the best delivery of services to the people, especially during this challenging time,” he said.
“In the face of current developments, I give the assurance that the civil service, in particular the frontliners, are always fully committed to ensuring that the government’s system of delivery is not affected, based on current government policies.”
In a statement, he said day-to–day administrative matters would continue as usual, led by the chief secretaries of ministries and the heads of government agencies.
“Safety personnel, especially the police and armed forces, are always ready to protect public peace,” he added.
Zuki also said that assistance and initiatives involving large allocations would not be affected, particularly the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme.
“No matter what turmoil and storms hit, we will continue serving in order to carry out our responsibilities for the sake of the country,” he said.
