All 18 MPs from PAS maintain support for Muhyiddin and PN

(FMT) – PAS today said all its 18 MPs would maintain their support for Muhyiddin Yassin as the prime minister to lead the Perikatan Nasional (PN) government.

PAS secretary-general Takiyuddin Hassan, in a statement today, said PAS was not impacted by the rhetorics of PKR president and opposition chief Anwar Ibrahim who claimed he had received the support of the majority of the MPs to take over the reins of government.

‘’PAS regards the issue raised by him as a desperate action driven by personal interest and ambition to take advantage of the situation when the PN government is tackling Covid-19 pandemic as well as taking measures to restore the national economy.

‘’In this matter, PAS is very confident the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah will not entertain the actions of this desperado.

“On the other hand, the Agong will handle the matter based on the provisions and laws under the national constitution.

‘’PAS also hopes the government will take strict legal action against any party that causes anxiety and confusion among the people, as well as causes damage to the country’s economic sector as a result of the action,’’ he said.

Prior to this, it was reported that Anwar, who is also the Port Dickson MP, claimed that he had received the consent for an audience with the King to table complete information on the majority of MPs who supported him, as stated during a media conference at the Le Meridien Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, on Sept 23.
