KUCHING, Sept 25: Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) has urged Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin to step down following its party president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim claims that he has the majority support to form a new government.
PKR information chief Datuk Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin, in a statement today, said after the announcement made by Anwar, the prime minister has already known for himself that he has lost the majority support of the Members of Parliament.
He said Muhyiddin should step down and resign as the prime minister of Malaysia in a respectful manner because the support of the majority of MPs is now with Anwar.
“Keadilan fully supports the new Malaysia administration under the leadership of Anwar, which will be representing Malaysians, with the support from the Bumiputera-Malay majority and fair representation of all races in the country,” he said.
According to Shamsul, Anwar is scheduled to meet Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah and this was confirmed by the Comptroller of the Royal Household Datuk Indera Ahmad Fadli Shamsuddin.
“His Majesty had already consented to meet with Anwar on Sept 22, 2020, at 11 am, however the meeting was postponed at the last minute due to His Majesty’s health condition, for which he is receiving treatment at the National heart Institute,” he said.
At the same time, Shamsul added, UMNO president Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi in a press statement also announced that a large number of UMNO’s MPs had expressed their support (to Anwar).
On Sept 23, 2020, Anwar in a press conference announced that he has garnered strong majority support from the MPs to form a new government and will meet with the Agong after his recovery. –DayakDaily.
