Ismail Sabri vs KJ: Is it just a breakdown in communication or is there something more behind the recent screw-ups?

Get on the same page, Kok tells Ismail Sabri, Khairy after HIDE closure order snafu

“The contradictory statements made by Khairy and Ismail in the last two instances showed that they have failed to communicate and failed to understand each other’s concerns before they made public statements. On top of that, both ministers have failed to understand the consequences of the statements that they issued." - Teresa Kok

Kuala Lumpur, 9/5/21: You'd think that the two Umno ministers in Muhyiddin's Cabinet are out to outdo each other ahead of their party's election. Which is not the case, I'm sure. At least I don't think so. Because I don't think there's going to be an Umno election before the country's general elections (which Muhyiddin must call by 2023). KJ suspects that, too, and that's why he made that call in March for the party leaders to do the right thing.    

But the right thing to do now is for Ismail and Khairy to heed Teresa Kok's advice: talk to each other and stop screwing us up. Don't make things messier for the people than they already are.

Meanwhile, here's a bit more more confusion, this one from the Transport Ministry (luckily not another Umno minister):  

Transport Services at stations, terminals listed in HIDE to continue operating

PUTRAJAYA, May 9 — All public transport services at stations and terminals listed under the Hotspots Identification for Dynamic Engagement (HIDE) early warning system will continue to operate.

The Transport Ministry (MOT), in a statement today, said the three stations involved were the KLCC LRT, Masjid Jamek LRT and KL Sentral.

“However, all business premises at the stations listed will be closed for three days from May 9 to 11 in accordance with the directives issued by the National Security Council (MKN) as announced yesterday,” the statement read.
