KUALA LUMPUR (Aug 3): Umno president Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi (pictured) said a number of Umno members of Parliament (MPs) have signed a declaration letter indicating their withdrawal of support for Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
During a Facebook live broadcast, Zahid said the number of MPs that signed the letter, which has been presented to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, is enough to show that Muhyiddin has lost majority support and that his premiership is invalid.
At the time of writing, Umno had yet to confirm with the media the actual number of MPs that signed the declaration.
Zahid said the Umno Supreme Council, at a meeting today, decided to not defend the Perikatan Nasional (PN) government, which he deemed “has clearly failed in the eyes of the people”.
“In expressing its loyalty to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, the Supreme Council has unanimously agreed to withdraw its support for PN and Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin as prime minister.
“Tan Sri Muhyiddin must take responsibility over the failure and defiance of the government he leads, which goes against the decree of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, by honourably resigning as prime minister,” said Zahid.
