Today (January 20), Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak challenged Finance Minister, Tengku Datuk Seri Mohd Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz’s statement which said that the country going into a state of emergency has helped improve the Malaysian economy.

In a post shared on Najib Razak’s Facebook, he said that if this truly was the case, other countries should follow suit and suspend their parliament sessions too to strengthen the economy.

Perlu jujur, bro.Rugilah negara-negara lain tak gantung parlimen jika benar bahawa langkah ini boleh kuatkan…

He also claimed the Finance Minister’s statement which said that Malaysia was one of the 80 other countries who declared a state of emergency was less than accurate.

“A state of emergency for other countries means the power is given to the government to have a lockdown because they do not have acts like ours that allow lockdowns without a declaration of a state of emergency.”

“Their parliament has never been suspended. Malaysia is the only country in the world to use the Covid-19 as an excuse to suspend the parliament.”

“It’s easy, Tengku Zafrul. Name any other country in the world that has suspended the parliament (not postponed the parliament session) for seven months,” he challenged.

On 19 January, Tengku Zafrul claimed that Malaysia was among the 80 countries in the world that had declared a state of emergency to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic.

Tengku Zafrul also stated that the definition of an emergency is different based on each country’s unique characteristics.

He said that public health is the key to economic recovery. He explained that any decision approved in the current period must receive the Yang di-Pertuan Agong’s consent or the person appointed by His Majesty.

According to a Sinar Harian report, Tengku Mohd Zafrul said this during a special briefing on the RM15 billion Economic and People’s Protection Protection Package (Permai) announced by the Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin on Monday (18 January).
