The council stressed that effort to restore the people’s mandate requires commitment to uphold justice, eradicate corrupt practices and improve institutions, including the judiciary.

“Pakatan Harapan also prays that the Yang di-Pertuan Agong recovers from any health related problems and remains under divine protection,” said the statement issued by the respective party’s secretary-general’s in PH, today.

The statement was issued by PKR secretary-general, Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution; Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah) secretary-general, Datuk Dr Hatta Ramli and DAP’s National Organising Secretary, Anthony Loke.

However, the Parliamentary Opposition leader declined to reveal the details until he had an audience with Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah.

In a press conference at the Le Meridien hotel, he also claimed that with the majority of federal lawmakers backing him, the government led by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin had fallen. – NST
