Pas info chief says there are no plans for motion of no confidence against PM

KUALA LUMPUR: The opposition has no plan at the moment to table a motion of no confidence against Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Pas information chief Ahmad Fadhli Shaari said it was premature to make any stand on filing the motion in Dewan Rakyat.

"So far there has been no discussion about the matter. The Dewan Rakyat will only convene at the end of February.

"The government need not panic. As of now, the unity government is still valid," he told the New Straits Times.

When asked to comment on his previous claims that many motions filed by the opposition had been rejected by Dewan Rakyat Speaker Tan Sri Johari Abdul, Fadhli said this was beyond doubt, but did not elaborate further.

Meanwhile, several other opposition members of parliament had also posted on their respective social media platforms with the phrase "Kekal Tenang (stay calm)".

The phrase was believed to allude to the opposition not engaging in the act of toppling the government.

These MPs include Wan Fayhsal Wan Ahmad Kamal (Machang) and Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Samsuri Mokhtar (Kemaman).

Earlier, Johari was reported as having said that the opposition has yet to submit a motion of no confidence against the prime minister.

He said the opposition could submit such a motion to be included even though the first session of the third term would only begin next month.

He was commenting on the opposition's claim that there was no guarantee that a vote of no confidence against the prime minister would be accepted for discussion and vote in the august house.
