The Pejuang bloc led by former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad says it will not comment on developments sparked by Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s announcement that several MPs allied with him have revoked their support for Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin.
Instead, Pejuang president Mukhriz Mahathir issued a reminder to heed the Yang di-Pertuan Agong’s call to focus on fighting the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Indeed, that is what Pejuang had intended when it proposed the National Recovery Council by mobilising experts to focus on solving the problems,” he said in a statement.
Earlier today, Zahid said he had enough statutory declarations from MPs who had revoked their support for Muhyiddin, which would be submitted to the Agong.
He said this showed that Muhyiddin had lost the majority as well as his legitimacy as head of the government.
