DAP stalwart Tan Sri Lim Kit Siang today questioned Perikatan Nasional (PN) chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin’s call for Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to step down after the six state polls.

The veteran leader said Muhyiddin did not resign after claiming that his coalition could easily obtain a “5-1” win against Pakatan Harapan in the election in six states.

“I am titillated by Muhyiddin’s call for Anwar to resign as prime minister following the result of the polls when he is not resigning over his boast that PN could easily obtain 5-1 or win all six states.

“Furthermore, did Muhyiddin resign as deputy prime minister when Umno lost a two-thirds majority in Parliament for the first time in the 2013 General Election?” he said in a statement, today.

Last night, Muhyiddin during a press conference had asked Anwar and Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi to resign from their posts following the status quo result of the election.

Muhyiddin said PN’s performance in the polls, where it gained 146 out of 245 state seats, showed the people’s rejection to the PH-BN unity government.

Therefore, he had said Anwar and Zahid, as leaders of the coalition, must take responsibility by immediately resigning as prime minister and deputy prime minister. – NST
