Malaysia will have snap polls if Perikatan Nasional (PN) quits the ruling coalition, Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob said today.
“If that (PN’s) support is withdrawn, then the elections must be held immediately,” he told reporters after launching the 2022 Malaysian Agriculture, Horticulture and Agro Tourism Exhibition in Serdang.
Ismail also said he was aware of talk that PN was planning to withdraw its support for the government.
“I am aware of this. We live in a democratic country so anyone is free to say anything.
“What’s important is that we must be ready regardless of the situation,” he said.
PN is reported to be upset with the prime minister following his decision to call off a meeting at the last minute.
The meeting was to have discussed PN’s unhappiness with the prime minister in the execution of the terms of an agreement of political cooperation between them, including on the appointment of a deputy prime minister from Bersatu. – TMI
