The Perikatan Nasional (PN) government is not affected by Machang Member of Parliament Datuk Ahmad Jazlan Yaakob’s retraction of support for it, said Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Parliament and Law) Datuk Takiyuddin Hassan.

He said the move by the Barisan Nasional MP did not affect PN’s majority in the Dewan Rakyat….

“What is important is that the government has functioned well since it took over the helm (of the country) since March until now. The people also can see that. So we (government) will continue to serve through its organisational structure at all levels,” he said.

Our comment

Everyone can see how PN has performed – that is true. However, it is incumbent on this usurper to put that to an electoral test as soon as possible.

However, PN beneficiaries like himself are instead guaranteed to hang on to the power to divert cash into their pockets for as long as they can pull it off. Everyone can see that as well.

The reason this government considers itself unaffected by its lack of a stable majority of MPs is that it has chosen the dark path of ditching democracy and running the place by ‘dictate’ and ‘royal decree’.

As a member of a religious extremist party who believes only male leaders of the faith have a right to decide on anything, the destruction of democratic institutions will not trouble this wily lawyer.

After all, for now he has positioned himself right by the till.
