There is no indication that Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin has lost the support of the majority of MPs in the Dewan Rakyat, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Parliament and Law) Takiyuddin Hassan said today.

He added that the 25 motions of no-confidence and two motions of confidence listed as the 26th and 27th items in today’s Order Paper are not matters that need to be expedited.

“I would like to clarify that we are subject to Standing Orders 14 and 15 (1) that clearly state that government business should take precedence over other businesses as there is no indication that Yang Berhormat Pagoh has lost the support.

“The government is of the view that these motions of no-confidence and confidence are specific in nature and in the public interest, I believe the Dewan is of the view that there is no urgency in this,” he said.

He was responding to Hassan Abdul Karim (PH-Pasir Gudang) who asked when the motions of no-confidence and confidence would be tabled, debated and voted on.

However, Takiyuddin said there should be no issue for any party to show support for any of the members of the Dewan Rakyat as prime minister.
