Bersih 2.0 Supports a Reconfigured PH Government to Continue the People’s Mandate and Fulfill its Manifesto

Press Statement (29 February 2020): Bersih 2.0 Supports a Reconfigured PH Government to Continue the People’s Mandate and Fulfill its Manifesto

29 FEBRUARY 2020

Bersih 2.0 reiterates that the people’s mandate in the 14th General Election (GE14) must be respected in the formation of the next government for the remaining term.

Given the choice between Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad (TDM) and Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, Bersih 2.0 supports a government led by TDM on the following expectations.

First, it has to be a Pakatan Harapan (PH) government based on the Buku Harapan manifesto, as this was the people’s mandate in GE14. It may also be a PH++ government with new members – parties or individual parliamentarians – but the new members must commit themselves to the Buku Harapan.

Second, the political turbulence since February 23 is due to ambiguity in PH’s transition plan and its recurrence must be avoided with a clear transition plan. TDM’s prime ministership should end in November, latest within two weeks after the APEC summit. To minimise uncertainty, his successor should be made the Deputy Prime Minister, and the person should be Anwar Ibrahim, the 8th Prime Minister promised by PH in GE14, or any other candidate agreed by PH’s presidential council.

Third, responsible and healthy party politics must be promoted through substantial reforms in electoral and wider political system so that there would be a term limit for Prime Minister and de-concentration of his/her power, strengthening of the Parliament, a level playing field in the 15th General Election (GE15) for all parties to contest – with preparation for parties in this government to compete against each other, and measures to promote government’s viability and curb party-crossing.

Finally and most importantly, the reconfigured PH government must recognise its weakness in implementing the reform agenda in its first 21 months, and focus on three aspects in the remaining term:

  1. Managing the economy in the wake of the Covid-19 outbreak and the on-going US-China trade war to alleviate the hardship of the people, especially the marginalised groups.
  2. Deepening institutional reforms to affirm rule of law, good governance and human rights.
  3. Improving communal relations and reduce anxiety and insecurity felt by the Malay-Muslims as well as other communities in East and West Malaysia.

Bersih 2.0 menegaskan bahawa mandat Rakyat dalam Pilihan Raya Umum ke-14 mesti dihormati dalam pembentukkan kerajaan untuk baki penggalnya.
Dibekalkan dua pilihan di antara Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad (TDM) dan Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, Bersih 2.0 menyokong satu kerajaan yang diketuai oleh TDM atas ekspektasi-ekspektasi seperti berikut:-
Pertama, ia mesti merupakan sebuah kerajaan Pakatan Harapan (PH) yang berasaskan manifesto Buku Harapan, kerana ini adalah mandat Rakyat dalam PRU14. Ia boleh juga merupakan kerajaan PH++ dengan ahli-ahli baru – parti atau ahli parlimen – atas syarat bahawa mereka mesti menyatakan iltizam kepada Buku Harapan.
Kedua, kemelut politik semenjak 23hb Februari adalah disebabkan oleh kekaburan dalam pelan peralihan kuasa. Masalah ini mesti dielakkan dengan adanya satu pelan peralihan kuasa yang jelas. Tempoh TDM sebagai Perdana Menteri seharusnya berakhir pada bulan November 2020, sekurang-kurangnya dua minggu selepas sidang kemuncak APEC. Untuk meminimakan ketidaktentuan, calon yang menggantikan beliau harus dinamakan sebagai Timbalan Perdana Menteri dan calon itu ialah Anwar Ibrahim, Perdana Menteri Ke-8 seperti yang dijanjikan oleh PH dalam PRU14, atau mana-mana calon lain yang dipersetujui oleh Majlis Presiden PH.
Ketiga, politik parti yang bertanggungjawab dan sihat mestilah dipupuk melalui reformasi bermakna dalam sistem pilihan raya dan sistem politik yang lebih luas, supaya akan ada had penggal bagi Perdana Menteri dan pencairan (deconcentration) kuasanya, pemerkasaan Dewan Rakyat, gelangang permainan yang rata untuk kesemua parti politik untuk bertanding dalam PRU15 – dengan persediaan untuk parti-parti dalam kerajaan ini bersaing sesama lain, serta langkah-langkah untuk memupuk kebolehtahanan (viability) kerajaan dan mencegah gejela lompat parti.
Akhirnya, dan yang paling penting adalah bahawa kerajaan PH yang diatur semula ini mesti mengakui kelemahan-kelemahan dalam melaksanakan agenda refomasi dalam 21 bulan yang lalu, dan menumpu pada tiga aspek, iaitu:-
Menjaga ekonomi apabila negara diancam wabak Covid-19 dan menghadapi perang dagang Amerika Syarikat-China dan melegakan kesusahan yang dialami oleh Rakyat, terutamanya golongan terpinggir.
Mendalamkan refomasi institusi untuk memajukan kedaulatan undang-undang (rule of law), pentadbiran yang baik dan hak asasi manusia.
Memperbaiki hubungan antara ethnik dan agama dengan mengurangkan kegelisahan dan kegusahan yang dirasai oleh Melayu-Muslim dan juga komuniti-komuniti lain di Semenanjung Malaysia dan juga Sabah dan Sarawak.
