SHAH ALAM: Members of Parliament who support the formation of the government do not violate the national Constitution and the Anti-Party Jumping Act.
Emphasizing the matter, the Chairman of Perikatan Nasional (PN), Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said that the actions of all Barisan Nasional (BN) and Independent MPs were only in their individual capacities and not from the party.
He explained that the matter was not an issue because it did not prevent any individual from supporting him.
“The support is not all from BN, in fact, Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS), Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) and Bebas.
“If according to the Constitution, it states the members of Parliament and does not say from which party. Individuals can, their groups and parties can.
“That is the right of Members of Parliament and does not violate the provisions of the Anti-Party Jumping Act because they did not leave the party but individually expressed their support for me,” he said after chairing the Bersatu Malaysian Indigenous Party (Bersatu) Supreme Council Meeting at a hotel in Glenmarie here. , last night.
Earlier, Utusan Malaysia reported all 29 Barisan Nasional (BN) Members of Parliament except UMNO President, Datuk Seri Dr. Ahmad Zahid Hamidi is accused of signing a Sworn Declaration (SD) to support Muhyiddin Yassin as Prime Minister.
The SD is believed to have been signed by Sembrong Member of Parliament, Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Tun Hussein.
Asked about Ahmad Zahid’s statement about BN not consulting with PN to form a government, Muhyiddin said it was just a personal interpretation and view.
“If the National Constitution says that a person who wants to be Prime Minister must gain the trust of the majority of members of Parliament and if you follow the terms, 112 seats.
“No mention of coming from party A, B or C. That is just Zahid’s interpretation and view,” he said.
In the meantime, he said, last night’s special meeting aimed to give a briefing on the election results and the formation of a new government.
“I have issued a statement that I have met the Premier of Sarawak and Datuk Seri Hajiji regarding the agreement to support the National Alliance.
“God willing, tomorrow I will be able to present some sworn statements to them that we have obtained the number of members of Parliament to form the government,” he said.
Earlier, Muhyiddin described that he sought the support of Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS), Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) and several members of the Dewan Rakyat to become the 10th Prime Minister.
The Pagoh Member of Parliament is confident that he will get enough support from members of the Dewan Rakyat to allow the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to be appointed as Prime Minister as required by the Federal Constitution. – MESSENGER
