Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin clarified today that he has not been evading the media but was focused on handling the Covid-19 outbreak in the country.
Muhyiddin conducted a rare virtual press conference this evening, the first in months where he opened with why he has not been able to have a press conference lately.
“It’s not that I am trying to avoid the media, it’s just that my focus has been on current issues faced by the country especially the Covid-19 pandemic and the economic recovery.
“Engaging with the media is also among my priorities if you look at my past records whenever there were any issues I have always communicated with the media.
“But this time around since I took up the prime minister position, I have had to deal with the Covid -19 pandemic, which is a major concern,” he said. – MMO
