(The Star) – A no confidence motion against the Prime Minister has been slotted in the Dewan Rakyat order paper.

The motion filed by Opposition leader Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail (pic) is the 31st and last item in the orders of the day and motions for today.

However, Dewan Rakyat Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia has yet to decide on whether to allow the motion to go through.

In practice, the Dewan also need to finish all orders of the day on the same day of meeting and the orders can also be amended.

The motion reads: “That this House has no confidence in Yang Amat Berhormat Pekan Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak as Prime Minister of Malaysia.”

The motion was submitted in October at the office of Pandikar Amin.

The  previous motion of no confidence was submitted by Hee Loy Sian (PKR-Petaling Jaya Selatan). The motion is also slotted for number 27 in the Order Paper.

However, Pakatan Harapan had collectively agreed that it would be Dr Wan Azizah who would table the motion.
