The Parliament should form a new All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on National Recovery when the Dewan Rakyat reconvenes to ensure a bipartisan approach to saving lives and livelihoods during the Covid-19 endemic. [KSI] president Tan Sri Michael Yeoh said this might be akin to the successful APPG on the sustainable development goals (SDG), which includes members from both the government and opposition parties. In the forthcoming special session of Parliament, Yeoh said the institute hopes that members of parliament (MPs) will focus on the 3Rs - Recovery, Reconciliation, and Rebuilding.

We welcome the Parliament session from July 26 to Aug 2 and thank His Majesty, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, for calling for Parliament to meet and the Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin for fixing the dates for this special session. We believe this special session of Parliament will be essential to ensure good governance, integrity, transparency and accountability. We call on MPs on both sides of the House to prioritise the people and the nation and to put aside political divide and rivalry to ensure we can all combine efforts and resources to win the war against the invisible enemy we are fighting – the coronavirus.

A research institute has mooted the idea of setting up an All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on National Recovery to ensure a bipartisan approach to save lives and livelihood during the Covid-19 pandemic when the Dewan Rakyat sits. It can be similar to the successful APPG on the Sustainable Development Goals which has members from the government and opposition parties working together, [KSI] said today.
