Pakatan Harapan (PH) could have toppled the current government if it had wanted to, says Amanah president Mohamad Sabu.
However, Mohamad (Amanah-Kota Raja) said the opposition coalition would not do so as it chose to adhere to the memorandum of understanding (MoU) it signed with the Ismail Sabri Yaakob-led government.
“The current government is unstable and the prime minister has changed a couple of times now.
“If we wish to, we could unseat the current prime minister but we do not want to as we have signed an MoU.
“Having said that, the prime minister is urged to keep the interest of the people at heart until the next general election,” Mohamad said when debating the bill on the constitutional amendment to facilitate the tabling of the anti-hopping law.
Mohamad, who is better known as Mat Sabu, stressed that the coalition remains committed to the agreement.
PH and the federal government signed the MoU last September to restore political stability following a change of government.
The tabling of an anti-hopping bill and a constitutional amendment to limit the prime minister’s term are among the core elements of the MoU, set to expire in July. – FMT
