Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob has ruled out the possibility of including opposition Members of Parliament in his cabinet.

“They (Opposition) have no participation in the Cabinet. There is no unity government with the Opposition,” he was quoted.

Speaking to reporters in Kedah, Ismail however, said that the Opposition could be involved in the other committees.

“They want to discuss, God willing. I will meet with them to discuss, they want to know what their role is.”

“The same with economic recovery, there is the National Recovery Council and they can also be involved in that.”

“But cooperation does not mean they are in the Cabinet.”

“If they really want to help solve the Covid-19 issue, we have the Special Committee on Covid-19, they can contribute their opinions and ideas there.”

On Thursday, DAP supremo, Lim Kit Siang had proposed for a unity government with PKR President Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as Deputy Prime Minister.

This was revealed after insiders comfirmed that Anwar did not have the majority.

Kit Siang said that his proposed ‘War Cabinet’ should reflect this parliamentary unity, to turn the tides of defeat in the 20-month war against the Covid-19 pandemic.

His proposal was echoed by the top guns in DAP.

On Friday, Lim Guan Eng who is Kit Siang’s son released a reconciliatory statement congratulating Ismail on the appointment.

Lim Guan Eng

“Ismail’s main task will be to unite all Malaysians to correct the failures and mistakes in fighting the Covid-19 pandemic.”

“Ismail should remember that he is the Prime Minister of all Malaysians. He must serve and protect the interest of everyone regardless of race, religion or background.”

Apart from Lim, DAP’s Organising Secretary, Anthony Loke also appealed for UMNO and DAP to find common ground.

“Everyone regardless Government or Opposition must find common ground to focus fully on the Covid-19 pandemic and lower the political temperament.”

“Everyone must be big hearted to reach out a hand so that the winner doesn’t take all while the loser loses all.”

Besides Guan Eng and Anthony, Terasa Kok who is DAP’s Deputy Secretary General and a former political secretary to Kit Siang also said that she hopes for Ismail’s cooperation.

“I hope that Ismail can be a PM that is willing to cooperate with Opposition MPs. He must show that he is a leader for all Malaysians and a leader with a vision and mission.”
