Shah Alam - Umno veteran Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz has said the government may have lost "moral ground" to govern Putrajaya after Dewan Rakyat rejected the motion to extend the enforcement of subsection 4(5) of the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act 2012 (Sosma) for another five years, yesterday.

The Padang Rengas MP said it is best to call for snap polls as the memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the government and Pakatan Harapan (PH) may also have been broken

“The government lost. How can we pass laws? We have no moral ground to be in the government.”

He added he has been against snap elections due to the government’s MoU with PH. “But today, I have no moral ground to stand here and say that we don’t need to dissolve Parliament.”

Politics, he added is about perception and people’s perception was that the government has lost after yesterday's Sosma motion was rejected.

“The fact is we (the government) lost a motion and the right thing to do (now) is to go back to the people,” he told the Lower House.
