Prime Minister calls for meeting, hinting at lost of majority

A source from the Perikatan Nasional (PN) administration has suggested the PN government is no longer the majority faction.

The anonymous source said there will be a meeting hosted by Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

The meeting will be at Muhyiddin’s house tomorrow (Aug 11) after his cabinet meeting.

All of Perikatan Nasional’s party members are expected to attend the meeting which includes Sabah Star President and Deputy Chief Minister, Datuk Seri Jeffrey Kitingan.

Other Sabah PN allies are said to be taking their flights to Kuala Lumpur.

The PN source said, “The situation does not look good. It seems PN no longer has the numbers.”

The cracks in the government emerged on Wednesday (Aug 4) after several UMNO members withdrew from the Perikatan faction.

As of today (Aug 10), the withdrawal means Muhyiddin has lost the needed 112 Parliament seats.

In September, the Prime Minister will contest his approval in Parliament as approved by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

The move has been heavily condemned by the Opposition parties as they see it as a delay tactic.

As scheduled, the Pagoh MP will have his weekly meeting with the King before hosting the PN meeting at home.
