Why Parliament should reconvene - Koon Yew Yin

Author:   |    Publish date:


Malaysia practises parliamentary democracy with constitutional monarchy. Parliament is the house of representatives of the people. All Members of Parliament (MP) are elected by the people and they represent the people.

Covid 19 pandemic is affecting everybody in the world and Malaysians are not spared. Just a few days ago we had the greatest number of Covid 19 cases per capita in the world.

Currently we have a total of 668,000 Covid 19 cases and 4,069 deaths. These 2 figures are not reducing fast enough. It is affecting everybody and our economy badly.  

 

 

A few days ago, I wrote an open letter to ask PM Muhyiddin to call the Chinese Ambassador in KL or call President Xi to supply us with Sinovac vaccines instead of buying vaccines from Pharmaniaga who is the sold agent for Sinovac vaccines in Malaysia. If he had followed my advice, he could have saved many lives.

Parliament should reconvene immediately to formulate the right method and policy to tackle this deadly problem.

The last Parliament session was on 8 March – 8 April.

Why Parliament should reconvene immediately?  

As we all know, most Malaysians voted for Pakatan Harapan with Dr Mahathir as the leader in the last general election (GE14) on 9 May 2018 to remove the corrupted Barisan National which has been in control of the government since Merdeka in 1957.

The four PH members were Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR, with 50 MPs), Democratic Action Party (DAP, 42 MPs), Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM, 26 MPs) and Parti Amanah Negara (11 MPs).

The two PH-friendly allies were Parti Warisan Sabah (nine MPs) and United Progressive Kinabalu Organisation (Upko, one MP).

The total number of MPs in Parliament is 222 and Pakatan Harapan and PH-friendly allies have a total of 139 MPs and the legitimate right to form the government.   

After PH won the last general election, all the component parties agreed to have Dr Mahathir as PM and after 1 year, Dato Seri Anwar should take over as PM. After a short while, Dr Mahathir resigned to allow Muhyiddin to come in as PM by the back door.  

Before I asked Dato Seri Anwar to launch my 2nd book namely “New Road Map to Developed Nation”, I was told that he had enough of support to make him the next PM.

 

In view of the Covid 19 pandemic and many people are dying every day, Parliament should reconvene immediately to select a strong PM who can make bold and effective rule and policy to stop people from dying.

ahbah PETALING JAYA: Malaysia’s poverty rate spiked to 8.4% in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, according to economic affairs minister Mustapa Mohamed.

In 2019, the poverty rate stood at 5.6%.

Mustapa said the pandemic had caused disruptions to people’s income, leading to many more households being exposed to poverty, especially for those in the B40 and most vulnerable categories.

Our poor rakyat kena banyak teruk from the pandemic !

ahbah India is saved by Ivermectin ?

ahbah PETALING JAYA: A doctor has confirmed that his private clinic was raided by the health ministry yesterday for supplying the anti-parasitic drug Ivermectin to his patients to prevent Covid-19 infection.

On May 16, health director-general Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said the ministry had not approved the use of Ivermectin to prevent or treat Covid-19 because there were no scientific studies to prove it was effective.

While Dr Amir Farid Isahak confirmed that his clinic in Kuala Lumpur was raided by the authorities, he declined to comment further, on the advice of his lawyer.

“I did make the statement, but my lawyer has advised me against making any statement at this time,” he told FMT.

In a separate statement that was circulated online yesterday, the doctor explained that the slow vaccination rate had convinced him to offer the drug to patients because it was proven to be “very safe”.

“I accept that the 58 scientific studies done so far are sufficient to prove its (Ivermectin’s) effectiveness although our health ministry and some doctors do not.

“Therefore, I acted according to what I believe, and according to my conscience, to try to save lives,” he continued, adding that he was prepared for the consequences if his actions came to the attention of the authorities.

However, he said the need to save people superseded any fears of legal action. “If the Ivermectin from me saved just one life, it is worth it,” he said.

FMT is seeking Noor Hisham’s response on the matter.

In early June, the health ministry and the health ministry’s Institute for Clinical Research began clinical trials to study the effects and effectiveness of Ivermectin to treat high-risk Covid-19 patients in 12 government hospitals.

Noor Hisham said at the time that the drug had received approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat a wide spectrum of diseases, there was no conclusive evidence to recommend its off-label use for Covid-19 patients.

Ivermectin has attracted international attention following several case studies and clinical trials that showed promising results in treating Covid-19, but neither the FDA nor the World Health Organization has recommended it for use outside of such trials.

Can Dr. Amir save n protect All Malaysians from covid 19 ?

ahbah PETALING JAYA: The use of anti-parasitic drug Ivermectin as an early intervention tactic could help to reduce the strain on Malaysia’s health system and put the country on the fast track to recovery, a health group has claimed.

The Malaysian Alliance for Effective Covid Control said that the treatment, which is not currently approved for use to treat Covid-19, is a safe and effective way to prevent more severe cases of the disease.

Currently, the health ministry, World Health Organization and the US-based Food and Drug Administration all do not recommend the use of Ivermectin to prevent or treat Covid-19.

Clinical trials in Malaysia for the use of the drug are underway, with these involving the drug’s application in high-risk, late stage patients.

Speaking on behalf of the group, Dr Amir Farid Isahak, who had his clinic raided last week for offering the drug to patients, put out an urgent appeal to the government regarding the need for a different strategy that includes Ivermectin.

“Globally, many countries are dealing with the pandemic differently, and based on these experiences we have to seriously consider using Ivermectin as a prophylactic and therapeutic modality,” he said.

“We plead with the government to exercise its emergency powers to fast-track the use of Ivermectin and appropriate supplements for immune enhancements for all individuals in quarantine stations and home quarantine.”

He cited 14 clinical trials of the drug as a prophylactic which showed 85% improvement, and 23 early treatment trials that showed 78% improvement.

“Large reductions in Covid-19 deaths are possible, and using Ivermectin early could reduce numbers progressing to severe disease. We are very confident this pandemic can be terminated sooner rather than later.”

While some trials of Ivermectin have shown promising results, many have been criticised for relying on small sample sizes or displaying elements of bias.

“We urge the government to position this drug and repurpose it as early therapy in patients,” Amir said.
