Malaysia’s ruling coalition headed by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as the Prime Minister may be headed for an untimely breakup and destruction, says Democratic Action Party adviser Lim Kit Siang.

The leader expressed his sentiments and concerns over a sex video scandal that has hit the country since last week.

A sex video implicating Economic Affairs Minister Azmin Ali could destroy the New Malaysia agenda and is the greatest challenge for the Pakatan government since the 14th General Election says the elderly politician.

Lim who is a Member of the Parliament in Johor says the country has been agog, haunted and hounded by the sex video.

“Are Malaysians to save Malaysia on 9th May 2018 in the 14th General Election from the trajectory of a failed, rogue and kleptocratic state only to allow the Haziq sex video to destroy the unique “Save Malaysia” mission a year later?,” he asks.

Such scandals demonstrates its potency to destroy the Pakatan coalition and derail the New Malaysia agenda, he insists.

“Pakatan leaders must unite to forge ahead and not to be derailed from the New Malaysia agenda,” he says in his blog on Sunday.

He also calls on Malaysians to trust the police with newly-appointed Inspector-General of Police Hamid Bador at the helm.
He says the police should be allowed to carry out its duty independently, fairly and in a trustworthy manner to investigate the sex video scandal.

The veteran politician says no one is above the law.

“This is why I…re-establish the important principle… that no one in Malaysia is above the law, whether the Prime Minister, Cabinet Ministers, the Attorney-General, the Inspector-General of Police or other high officers of the state,” he says.

Lim says he hopes the Dewan Rakyat (Parliament), which kicks-off its second meeting on July 1, would not allow the sex video scandal to overtake proceedings.

Instead, he says, the Parliament should look forward to debate the Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission, which is a step forward in reforms in the country.

“Instead of the July 2019 meeting of Parliament being known as a ‘sex video’ session, I would like to see it be known as the IPCMC (Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission) Parliament.

“Let us then… (ensure the) passing of the IPCMC Bill next month so that the IPCMC could be set up some 14 years after it was first mooted in 2005,” Lim added.
