According to Anthony Loke, Parliament would be dissolved by early August, opening the door for the GE15 election.
After Umno’s highest council pushed for an end to the Opposition pact’s accord with Putrajaya in July, DAP leader Anthony Loke Siew Fook stated today that his party and the Pakatan Harapan (PH) are prepared for any scenario.
He went on to say that this involves dissolving Parliament by early August, setting the way for the 15th general election, which is only scheduled for July of next year.
The DAP secretary-general stated that the most critical issue today for Pakatan Harapan is the government’s fulfilment of all pledges included in the MoU, particularly the passage of the Anti-Party Hopping Act, before the dissolution of Parliament.
He also stated that the DAP central committee, his party’s highest decision-making body, had already issued directives to all party members to prepare for the August general election.
The Memorandum of Understanding on Transformation and Political Stability was signed last year by PH leaders and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob as a truce to allow Malaysia’s socioeconomic recovery from the disastrous consequences of the Covid-19 outbreak.
