KUALA LUMPUR: The Pakatan Harapan (PH) ruling government has collapsed, following the resignation of Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and after the pact lost its Parliamentary majority.
Following the resignation of Dr Mahathir who is the Chairman of Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu), the former PH component member with 26 federal lawmakers pulled out from the pact, this afternoon.
This was further compounded by the resignation of nine PKR members of Parliament, as announced by former PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali.
Mohamed Azmin himself, along with former PKR vice president Zuraida Kamaruddin were both sacked from the party today.
The nine who followed suit after the sacking are:
- Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah (Indera Mahkota)
- Baru Bian (Selangau)
- Datuk Kamaruddin Jaffar ( Bandar Tun Razak)
- Datuk Mansor Othman (Nibong Tebal)
- Datuk Rashid Hasnon (Batu Pahat)
- Datuk Seri Dr. Santhara Kumar (Segamat)
- Ali Biju (Saratok)
- Willie Mongin ( Puncak Borneo)
- Jonathan Yasin ( Ranau)
As of Feb 21, PH had 129 seats.
Following the fallout from Bersatu and PKR resignations, the pact currently has 92 seats.
The breakdown in PH now sees DAP having 42 seats; PKR (39) and Amanah (11).
Meanwhile the remainder is made-up of Barisan Nasional (BN) with 42 seats, which is made up of Umno (39);
MCA (2) and MIC (1).
The others in the Dewan Rakyat are Parti Warisan Sabah (9); UPKO (1); PAS (18); GPS (18);
GBS (3); PSB (1); and Independent (1).
