Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu officially tendered his resignation as the Perak Mentri Besar after losing the confidence vote yesterday at the State Assembly.
Ahmad Faizal announced his resignation at a press conference at the Mentri Besar’s official resident today.
Ahmad Faizal said he submitted his resignation letter to Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah during his audience today at the Istana Kinta at 3pm.
“Following my resignation, all the state executive councillors (exco) line up will follow suit,” he said.
“I apologise for all the inconvenience and unpleasant things. I have tried to do my best as an ordinary human, who is not perfect. Please forgive, I’m sorry,” he added.
Earlier, Ahmad Faizal had an audience with Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah at the Istana Kinta.
This was his second audience with the Sultan after a meeting was held yesterday evening.
This is the second time Ahmad Faizal resigned as the Perak Mentri Besar after submitting his resignation in March this year as the Pakatan Harapan (PH) mentri besar before reappointed for the same post under the Perikatan Nasional (PN) government. – MMO
