PAS will continue to support the Perikatan Nasional (PN) government and Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, said its deputy president Datuk Seri Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man (picture).

Tuan Ibrahim said the support is in line with the country’s effort to manage the Covid-19 pandemic through the National Recovery Plan (NRP) which is being implemented by the current government, while also taking seriously the latest developments of the country’s ongoing political turmoil.

He added that PAS will continue its commitment towards facilitating the affected Malaysians in facing the current difficult situation.

“We hope that all Malaysians are being patient and give cooperation in tackling the Covid-19 pandemic,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections (BERSIH 2.0) has called for Muhyiddin’s resignation and sought a no-confidence vote at the Dewan Rakyat following UMNO’s withdrawal of its support of the PM.

“Muhyiddin’s parliamentary strength has dropped to at most 104 only, seven seats short needed for a simple majority.

“BERSIH 2.0 underlines that it is irresponsible to prolong the political instability and deny Malaysians to have a functioning government while the country is facing a raging pandemic and an ailing economy.

“If Muhyiddin believes he can still command a majority, he must convene the Dewan Rakyat and table a motion of confidence in himself immediately, notwithstanding the widely disputed proposal of 14-day suspension by the Health DG,” the group said in a separate statement.
