Istana Melaka has yet to receive a letter from any political party seeking an audience with the Yang Dipertua Negeri, Mohd Ali Rustam, over claims that the current state government has lost its majority to govern, the governor’s special secretary Nur Azmi Ahmad says.
He said Ali had been under self-quarantine since Sept 30 after coming into close contact with Covid-19 positive individuals.
“Thus far, no letter has been submitted to him,” he said when contacted by Bernama today.
State Pakatan Harapan (PH) chairman Adly Zahari was previously reported as saying that his party would seek an audience with Ali in the near future, to submit a letter informing him that the state government, under Chief Minister Sulaiman Md Ali, had lost its majority.
This comes after four state assemblymen declared that they had lost confidence in the chief minister’s leadership and withdrew their support for him.
The assemblymen are former chief minister Idris Haron (BN-Sungai Udang), Nor Azman Hassan (BN-Pantai Kundor), Norhizam Hassan Baktee (Independent-Pengkalan Batu) and Noor Effandi Ahmad (Bersatu-Telok Mas).
