Barisan Nasional (BN) once again stressed that support for the 2021 Budget will continue based on previous announcements.
BN Treasurer-General Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said, based on current developments, there is no change in the votes of the budget division.
“That is the previous stance of the party (support for the 2021 Budget). For me what the party announced, that is our stance.
“If there are any other parties who feel dissatisfied, finally they need to look at what the party decided. That is easy for us to look ahead. If not all have their views, sentiments, emotions,” he said.
Previously, BN placed conditional support on the 2021 Supply Bill (RUU) by demanding that the government continue to provide automatic loan moratoriums and allow withdrawals of up to RM10,000 from the Employees Provident Fund (EPF) account.
It was emphasized by the former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak who is also the Member of Parliament for Pekan in the debate in the Dewan Rakyat who also requested that the extension of the loan moratorium be automatically given until 30 June 2021.
Apart from that, the Member of Parliament in the Dewan Rakyat today reportedly received a letter related to the motion of no-confidence motion against the Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin from Gua Musang Member of Parliament, Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah.
Commenting further, Hishammuddin said, tonight’s meeting is also not just a normal discussion but based on the current political landscape, it is a sign that BN is still relevant.
“It also shows the comfort between us (parties in BN) which has been in a network for a long time still exists. That I can see from the understanding, sincerity, honesty among us.
“This is a good sign because the political landscape out there has many possibilities but as long as it is in one line, there can be differences of opinion but in the end we put the party’s interests and priorities to the people.”
Clearly, it is time for BN to show leadership not only to one race but diversity as a strength which is a basis for the establishment of our party by previous fighters.
“Although we have to examine and delve into the uncertainty but as long as we are in the same line and direction, it gives a clearer journey that can be understood by the members down there.
“If we are able to show sincerity, honesty and firmness to the people, eventually the people will determine our ups and downs. If that can be done, BN can get out of this situation more strongly,” he said.
Asked if the situation led to the exit from the Perikatan Nasional (PN), he said, the possibility is uncertain and needs to be determined today.
“But what is important is that in the end we have supporters at the grassroots to be given priority before thinking about relationships with others, we need to think about our household first,” he said.
