The cabinet has resigned, says KJ
(FMT) – Khairy Jamaluddin has confirmed the end of the Perikatan Nasional government, saying the cabinet has tendered its resignation to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.
In an Instagram post, the science, technology and innovation minister Khairy Jamaluddin thanked Malaysians for the opportunity to serve the country.
His confirmation comes after intense speculation that Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin would tender his resignation during his audience with the King.
Meanwhile, Bersatu youth chief Wan Ahmad Fayhsal Wan Ahmad Kamal vowed that the PN administration will come back stronger.
“We stand tall and proud of you Tan Sri President. Thank you for your service and leadership,” he said in a Facebook post addressed to Muhyiddin.
Meanwhile, PAS supreme council member Mohd Khairuddin Aman Razali announced that the PN government held its final Cabinet meeting this morning.
Following the meeting, he said he was laying the matter in Allah’s hands.
Muhyiddin arrived at Istana Negara for an audience with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong at 12.23pm, and left shortly after at 1.01pm.
Earlier this morning, he met with his Cabinet ministers at a high-level meeting at Perdana Putra in Putrajaya.
It is understood that he will be holding a press conference soon.
