Nga calls on MPs to back Anwar in confidence vote
IPOH: DAP is confident that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim will secure a two-thirds majority in a vote of confidence in Parliament to lead the country, says Nga Kor Ming.
The DAP vice-chairman said the motion of confidence is a Westminster parliamentary system and he hoped on Dec 19, all Members of Parliament will support the unity government which has been consented to by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.
“My hope is for all the 222 MPs to support the Prime Minister, and the unity government.
“There is a need for a stable and solid government, and we need to focus on recovering the economy, attracting more investors, and creating more job opportunities,” he told a press conference after launching his Kepayang constituency service centre here.
Nga is the Teluk Intan MP and also the Kepayang assemblyman.
Nga, who is also the Local Government Development Minister, announced several projects.
Nga said he had a meeting with the Ipoh Mayor, and discussed the construction of a multi-level car park at the Ipoh Old Town area.
He said there was inadequate parking in the area, and if the multi-storey building was built, some 500 parking spaces could be created.
He also said the dilapidated Waller Court flats, the longest flats in South-East Asia, would be redeveloped.
“Also plans to upgrade the Central Market are in the pipeline, where issues of a leaking roof, water issues, and cleanliness will be addressed,” he said.
Another project that Nga announced was the construction of the 63-year-old Pasir Pinji market.
He said the market built in 1959 was falling apart, with the roof leaking, and walls crumbling.
“The cost for a new market will be between RM11mil and RM13mil, and I hope the market will be ready by 2025,” he added.
