DAP is willing to consider the offer to be part of the National Recovery Council (NRC) and the Special Committee on Covid-19 to save lives and livelihoods, says its secretary-general, Lim Guan Eng.

However, he said this was provided that the offer was not for token representation and a mere rubber-stamp of the government’s views.

“The winner cannot take all and the loser should not lose all,” he tweeted briefly in response to Ismail Sabri Yaakob’s maiden speech as prime minister yesterday.

In his inaugural national address, Ismail had invited the leadership of opposition parties to be part of the NRC and the Special Committee on Covid-19.

Urging all parties to put an end to power struggles and the people’s unrest, he said political stability must be attained as soon as possible through unity and cross-party cooperation.

The offer was also welcomed by PAS deputy president Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man.

“Right now we are in the national month. Independence from fighting against colonialism further developed the country. Let us all work together as a team for the sake of our beloved country,” he said.
