THIS is not the best year to hold the 15th General Election (GE15) given the anticipated nationwide flood season especially in the East Coast states.
Perikatan Nasional (PN) chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin (picture) said the floods will certainly affect the election process and bring inconvenience to the people.
“The government should instead prepare for the flood season while continuing to focus on speeding up the country’s recovery post-pandemic,” he said in a statement today.
Moreover, Muhyiddin said Malaysians are currently dealing with the issues of inflation, rising prices in consumer goods and the depreciation of the ringgit.
“Therefore, the government should give full attention to resolve the matter, especially through Budget 2023,” he said.
He added that PN’s Cabinet members have been asked to hold firm to this stance in Cabinet meetings.
