Rally cancelled due to Muhyiddin’s resignation

Sekratariat Solidariti Rakyat (SSR) announced today that it has chosen to call off this Saturday’s #Lawan protest in light of Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s resignation as Prime Minister and the dissolution of the Perikatan Nasional (PN) government earlier this week.

The organization said in a statement that the new Prime Minister sworn in by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong must demonstrate his legitimacy via a confidence vote in Parliament, not through obscure statutory pronouncements.

It said that the SSR wishes to emphasize that the #Lawan street demonstrations will not come to an end. The democratic process, which includes checks and balances on the governing administration, must be maintained.

It added that the group will not hesitate to organize further demonstrations if the new administration does not live up to its duty of ensuring the country’s peace in the face of the continuing Covid-19 epidemic and political turmoil.
