Badawi says nothing wrong with government doing flip-flop decisions on policies

The New Straits Times Online……

THE government should not be criticised for changing decisions for the good of the people, the prime minister said.
“Forget about flip-flops. The thing is whether you do the right thing or not,” Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said in Jakarta yesterday.

Last week, the cabinet reversed a decision to raise toll charges for five major highways after Abdullah asked for a review and said the time was not right for it.

Works Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Zin Mohamed had announced the new toll rates, which would have taken effect this month.

The prime minister said his call for a review was due to the drastic change in the economy since the cabinet considered the toll hike.
“If we do things that are not suitable or wrong, if we change it, what does that have to do with flip-flopping? If it went ahead, the one making the most noise would be the opposition.

“But now they have no chance to make noise, so they say it’s a flip-flop.”

Abdullah also commented on the political turmoil in Perak, saying the speaker had erred when calling for an emergency state assembly meeting today.

Speaker V. Sivakumar said the session would decide on a motion of support for Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin as the menteri besar. It would also consider a motion to dissolve the state assembly.

Earlier, he had suspended Menteri Besar Datuk Zambry Abdul Kadir and six executive councillors for up to 18 months.

“He should wait until the court decides on this. That’s the best thing to do. Have some patience.

“Calling for a meeting and suspending the menteri besar and exco members who are legally appointed by the sultan is not right. He chose to be controversial and that’s not right.(And  BN’s power grab is not controversial ?!!)
