Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu is no longer Menteri Besar of Perak after receiving the support of only 10 out of 59 assemblyman during a vote of confidence.

One assemblyman abstained and a whopping 48 voted against Ahmad Faizal (PN-Chenderiang) who is from Bersatu.

Furthermore, it would appear that the lack of support crosses the political aisle as the vote was initiated by Aznel Ibrahim (BN/UMNO-Pengkalan Bharu) and Howard Lee Chuan How (HARAPAN-Pasir Pinji).

Despite this, it appears that Ahmad Faizal has handled the situation well as Malaysiakini reports that he promised a smooth transition, thanked all assemblymen and even addressed his former allies in PH directly.

“I miss you guys sometimes actually, seriously,” he said.

In the State Assembly, BN/UMNO have the most seats with 25, followed by DAP with 16, PN have 8 (consisting of 5 from BERSATU and 3 from PAS), AMANAH have 5, PKR have 3, GERAKAN have 1 and there’s also 1 independent assemblyman.
