[ENGLISH VERSION BELOW] Kami, warganegara prihatin Malaysia yang menandatangani di bawah, menyeru parti-parti kerajaan dan pembangkang supaya mengadakan sidang Parlimen tergempar untuk menyemak-semula pakej rangsangan RM250bn yang dikatakan bertujuan untuk memerangi wabak koronavirus, sebelum ia diluluskan.

Perdana Menteri Muhyiddin Yassin mengakui bahawa kerajaan kini tidak diundi secara sah oleh rakyat.

Oleh itu adalah lebih diperlukan bahawa pakej rangsangan ini mendapatkan mandat dan kelulusan berpatutan daripada semua ahli Parlimen tanpa mengira kepatuhan parti (non-partisan). Prosedur seperti ini dilakukan oleh semua kerajaan sah di seluruh dunia.

Kami menyeru supaya sidang Parlimen tergempar ini diadakan serta merta. Pakej rangsangan harus dibincangkan secara terperinci dan disemak di mana perlu demi manfaat semua warganegara Malaysia tanpa mengira kelas, ras dan latarbelakang sosial.

Kami amat prihatin agar adanya ketulusan tentang sumber wang yang akan diperolehi dan cara perlaksanaan yang akan dilakukan, terutamanya penyaluran bantuan ini kepada golongan yang paling memerlukannya.

Kami yakin bahawa ahli Parlimen akan memainkan peranan tertentu tanpa mengira kepentingan parti agar pakej rangsangan yang paling sesuai dapat digubalkan.

Ini sahaja langkah yang paling betul dan sah bagi kerajaan kini membuktikan kebertanggungjawabannya kepada rakyat Malaysia.

English version

Discuss stimulus package in emergency session of Parliament

We, the undersigned concerned citizens, call on the government and opposition parties to convene an emergency parliamentary sitting to review before passing what has been described as the RM250bn stimulus package to combat the coronavirus situation in the country.

By Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin’s own admission, his government was not one legitimately voted in by the people.

As such, the government must obtain a proper mandate from all parliamentarians in a non-partisan manner for such a stimulus package to be approved. Such a procedure has been followed by legitimately elected governments across the globe.

We call for an emergency session of Parliament to be called immediately. The details of the stimulus package must be fully discussed and amended for the benefit of all Malaysians, regardless of class, ethnicity and social background.

We are especially concerned about the transparency of sources of funds and public delivery methods as well as their eventual accessibility to the most needy citizens.

We are confident that our parliamentarians will rise above party interests to craft and approve the right stimulus package.

This is the only way that the present government can prove itself accountable to the people of Malaysia.
