KUALA LUMPUR, July 11 — Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob has urged all parties, especially politicians, to stop playing politics and instead focus on helping people who have been adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
He said that with COVID-19 cases still high, all parties needed to unite and work together to fight the pandemic.
“Let us not play politics in the current situation because the people are in dire need of help, not only from the government but also from political parties, so we need to help the people.
“Right now our focus must be to help people who are facing difficulties and at the same time strategies to combat the COVID-19 pandemic must also be supported by all,” he told reporters after visiting the Kerinchi People’s Housing Project (PPR), which was placed under the Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO), here today.
Also present was Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Rina Mohd Harun.
The Kerinchi PPR comes under the EMCO from July 3 to 16.
