  • Emergency rule is not the way to fight Covid. Parliament should resume to allow others to check and hold the backdoor government to account for some their stupid decisions. Please listen to the Rakyat and not a backdoor government trying to cling on to power and at a great cost to the country. Some Rakyat have already paid for the mistakes of the backdoor government with their lives, and there are many more to come.
