138 MPs from the opposition and PH allegedly support Dr M to remain as Prime Minister for the full term


PETALING JAYA: Reports go viral that 138 MPs from PAS and UMNO, plus PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Azmin Ali and his allies have allegedly signed a statutory declaration supporting Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad to remain as prime minister for the full term, until the next general election.

If true, Dr. Mahathir needs only another 10 MPs now to have a strong two-thirds majority.

The PAS has also vowed they will soon push for a vote of confidence in the parliament in support of Dr. Mahathir to remain as the prime minister for the full term.

These speculations have prompted PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to meet the Prime Minister again yesterday to re-confirm the power transition.

Immediately after the meeting, Anwar said in a statement that Dr. Mahathir reiterated that he will hand over power to him, but after Malaysia hosts the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) in November.
