Anwar Pushes for No Confidence Vote
The Parti Keadilan Rakyat leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has stated in a letter that he will push for a motion of no confidence in Parliament against the Malaysian Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin.
House Speaker Datuk Azhar Azizan Harun who received Anwar’s letter said that he represents the Members of Parliament coinciding with the response of the national palace. The Yang di-Pertuan Agong had expressed disappointment in the revoking of the emergency ordinance without His consent.
The Port Dickson MP has also stated that the House Speaker and Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, Takiyuddin Hassan, should step down after dismal performance. He labelled the actions of Takiyuddin as “rude” and “treasonous” as the emergency was not tabled and debated in Parliament as suggested by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.
In the motion by Anwar, “That the house makes a resolution on its loss of confidence in Mahiaddin Md Yasin, the MP for Pagoh, and be impeached from his position as prime minister as soon as possible according to the Federal Constitution.”
Muhyiddin Yassin is facing an unrelentless amount of pressure from opposition leaders and Malaysian citizens. While UMNO had officially withdrawn support for Muhyiddin, there are still some within the party supporting Perikatan Nasional.
Deputy Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob had also stated that there are more than 110 Members of Parliament siding with the party.
