MUAR: Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin is prepared to face any possibility during the motion of confidence in Parliament next month as he believes he still has the majority support of MPs.
The Pagoh lawmaker, who is also Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) president, said he was not afraid of facing of the motion.
He added that the decision to hold the motion of confidence in September was agreed upon and consented by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong in a recent audience.
“To solve this matter we have to bring it to Parliament. I am not afraid or worried as I am confident of having the majority,” he added.
Muhyiddin said this in a press conference after handing out aid packages as part of the Bakul Prihatin Negara programme to Bukit Pasir community leaders for families under quarantine for Covid-19 here on Friday (Aug 6).
He was asked to comment on his position as Prime Minister after several Umno MPs had retracted their support against him recently.
Muhyiddin also reminded that as the country was still facing Covid-19, any changes could affect the government’s effort in battling the pandemic.
“Can the country face such problems if any reshuffling or changes leads to a chaotic political situation?
“It could affect the National Recovery Plan and any measures being taken such as the vaccination process and so on,” he said.
Muhyiddin added he would leave it to the wisdom and discretion of all the MPs to make their appropriate consideration in the next Parliament sitting.
