Anwar confident of getting two-thirds majority vote next week [NSTTV]

PUTRAJAYA: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is confident of obtaining a two-thirds majority vote in a special Dewan Rakyat session on Monday.

This, the Tambun member of parliament said, was based on the commitment given by the party leaders under the unity government, namely Pakatan Harapan (PH), Barisan Nasional (BN), Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS), Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS), Warisan and other parties.

"Please, pray for the best," he told a press conference after chairing the cabinet meeting today.

On Nov 24, Anwar had said he would test his "majority support" in the Dewan Rakyat on Dec 19 through a vote of confidence.

This came after the Perikatan Nasional chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin had questioned the legitimacy of Anwar's claim of having the support of the majority of lawmakers.

Anwar had on Sunday said that the motion of confidence will allow him to lead the country with a clear mandate based on the majority support of MPs.

He said the matter was clarified during his recent audience with Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah.
