KUALA LUMPUR: The Council of Former Elected Representatives of Malaysia (Mubarak) today urged the people to support the government's efforts and moves in handling the Southern Philippines armed intruders situation in Sabah to ensure national peace and security is not threatened.


Its information chief, Datuk Abdul Rahman Sulaiman, said the Council fully supported the actions taken by the government in its attempt to resolve the situation and hoped Malaysians could do the same for the government and security forces as well. 
"This is the time the government of Malaysia needs the people's undivided support," he told Bernama here today.
