Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin says the 15th general election will be held once the independent committee formed for the emergency determines that the Covid-19 situation has recovered and that elections are safe to be carried out.
“After that, it’s up to the people to choose which government deserves to govern the country,” he said in a televised announcement on the emergency today.
Muhyiddin also maintained that the judiciary will continue to function during the emergency.
“The judiciary will continue to be a beacon of justice in our country. I would never interfere in the business of the judiciary,” he said.
