KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 4, 2015:
BN will not be mooting a motion of no-confidence against Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak during the next parliamentary sitting.
BN Backbenchers Club (BNBBC) member Datuk Shamsul Anuar Nasarah said the matter was unlikely as Dewan Rakyat and the party had accepted the recent Cabinet reshuffle.
“This is because BN has principles and a high level of solidarity between fellow party leaders and members.
“As for the people, I hope they can provide the opportunity and confidence to the government as all matters or issues plaguing it are under the action of appointed authorities
“Let the authorities do their investigations and announce the results. Only this would be in accordance to the system practised in this country.
“I am sure a vote of no-confidence will not be done by any MP from BN,” the Lenggong MP told The Rakyat Post when contacted today.
Shamsul was asked to comment on calls by the Opposition to table a motion of no-confidence against Najib following recent developments in the nation’s political landscape.
Although he acknowledged the vote of no-confidence would be mooted by Opposition MPs, the move will not affect Najib’s position as chief administrator.
This, he said, was based on the number of Opposition MPs, which was insufficient to gain a two-thirds majority in Dewan Rakyat.
“However, as BN MPs, we have to be cautious because the Opposition is keen on doing it (tabling the motion).
“This was based on a number of statements from Opposition leaders previously.
“However, I believe their efforts will be futile simply because their numbers are not enough to change anything, other than to gain cheap publicity.”
He urged the Opposition to forget such a “futile”effort and give the BN government the opportunity to administer the country, as mandated by the people who had voted for them during the last general election.
“It is better for us to concentrate on the efforts to rehabilitate the problems faced by the country, in line with the Malaysian system.”
