All parties have been urged to respect the democratic process involving the transition of government leadership without creating public disharmony.
In a statement following the appointment of the new prime minister, Anwar Ibrahim, Inspector-General of Police Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani said strict action would be taken against irresponsible parties who create provocation or incite racial and religious issues.
“The public is also requested not to hold any political-related gatherings in the open in the near future for the sake of public safety and order,” he said.
He also advised users and owners of social media accounts to maintain good manners and behavior and refrain from uploading content that could cause anxiety in the community.
Acryl Sani also assured of the police’s commitment to preserving the level of security and public order under the administration of the Pakatan Harapan chairman.
“The police will remain committed to shouldering the responsibility of maintaining national security and upholding the rule of law for the well-being of the people and the country,” he said.
Acryl Sani also congratulated the Tambun MP for his appointment as the 10th prime minister after the consent of Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah.
