There will be a vote of confidence that will be held in Parliament when it reopens in September to determine whether Prime Minister Tan Sri Mahiaddin Md Yasin still has the majority in the Dewan Rakyat.
He gave the announcement after meeting the Yang-di Pertuan Agong this morning and also apologised for having to come out and explain to the public on whether he is still the Prime Minister.
The Prime Minister was present with several Ministers during the broadcast, including:
- Deputy Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri (UMNO)
- Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong (MCA)
- Human Resource Minister Datuk Seri Saravanan Murugan (MIC)
- Senior Minister (Infrastructure Development) Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof (GPS)
- Environment and Water Minister Datuk Seri Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man (PAS)
- Minister at the Prime Minister’s Department (Sabah and Sarawak) Datuk Seri Panglima Dr. Maximus Johnity Ongkili Maximus Ongkili (PBS Sabah)
- International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Azmin Ali (Bersatu)
- Education Minister Datuk Dr Radzi Jidin (Bersatu)
- Chief Secretary Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Mohammad Zuki bin Ali
He mentioned that the Agong was told that 8 UMNO MPs have withdrawn their support but said he had received letters from other MPs which led him to believe he still has enough support to continue.
In the announcement, he also said there are some parties who were not happy with him being firm on certain matters such as not intervening in court matters and freeing certain individuals from their criminal charges.
Although this is going on, Muhyiddin mentioned that the government will still continue to focus on the rakyat and fight Covid-19 – including the vaccination drive and disbursing aid that was announced previously.
