"Is this a gimmick? I am not playing around. As I stand up here and address the gathering, hearing various protests from the delegates, I want to make it clear that this is not a gimmick or child's play."

Muhyiddin said this in response to questions about whether the announcement made was a gimmick as he retracted his announcement to not defend his position just after one day of announcing.
