A special sitting of the Dewan Rakyat will be held on March 2 to determine the candidate who commands majority support to be the next prime minister, said Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

The interim Prime Minister said if the House fails to arrive at a decision, a snap election would be called.

”A snap election will be called if the March 2 special Parliament session fails to get the necessary majority to elect the PM,” he told a news conference after unveiling the 2020 Economic Stimulus Package at Bangunan Perdana Putra here today.
