All three state assemblypersons from Perak PKR will not support a motion of confidence for Menteri Besar Ahmad Faizal Azumu at the upcoming Perak state legislative assembly sitting.
State PKR vice-chairman and Simpang Pulai assemblyperson Tan Kar Hing said the motion was from Umno Pengkalan Baru assemblyman Datuk Abdul Manaf Hashim and has nothing to do with Pakatan Harapan.
“Our position is, in case the motion is being debated in the assembly, we will not support the motion, we will not support (Ahmad Faizal).
“This is a motion tabled by a government lawmaker. (We don’t know) if there is a hidden agenda behind it, for example to show support or otherwise, you will have to ask (Abdul Manaf),” Tan told a press conference at the PKR Office in Medan Istana, Ipoh.
On Monday, Perak Speaker Datuk Mohammad Zahir Abdul Kalid said that the motion will be tabled when the state assembly reconvenes for the tabling of the state’s 2021 budget on December 4 and continues from December 7 to 11.
The Speaker said the motion met requirements and was consequently included.
Mohammad Zahir also said there was no other motion submitted by any other assemblyman.
