Takiyuddin adamant that Anwar is helming 'a minority govt'

KOTA BARU: Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim leads a minority government, not a unity government as the Pakatan Harapan leader has claimed, said Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan.

According to the Pas secretary-general, none of the parties who won in the 15th General Election had enough seats to form a government.

"Pakatan Harapan (PH) won 82 seats in the recent election while Perikatan Nasional (PN) won 73 seats, which means PH holds the majority.

"But they still could not form a government. It is for this reason that PN refers to the new government as a minority government, not a unity government," Takiyuddin, who is Kota Baru MP, told reporters after attending his parliamentary thanksgiving ceremony here today.

On another note, he said PN would serve as a constructive opposition by implementing a "monitoring system" in the coming Parliament sitting.

"PN has 73 MPs and we will divide them into groups. Each of the three will be responsible for monitoring one ministry.

"They will handle all the issues brought up by the relevant ministries at the sitting," he added.
