KUALA LUMPUR: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Pakatan Harapan will not attend Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin's swearing-in ceremony as the new prime minister.
Dr Mahathir said the people are going to see a man who has no majority of MPs backing him being sworn in as the prime minister.
"It is very strange that after the election, the winners should form government, but here we will see the losers from the same election form the government while the winners become the opposition," he told a press conference at Yayasan Al-Bukhary on Sunday (March 1).
Dr Mahathir also claimed that the Yang di-Pertuan Agong will not see him anymore after appointing Muhyiddin as prime minister.
"I do not have the chance to tell him that Muhyiddin does not have the majority support.
"That is the situation," Dr Mahathir said.
Dr Mahathir said Muhyiddin will be sworn in as the 8th prime minister and that would mean that he ends his tenure as the interim prime minister.
"We have the majority. We have 114 MPs who backed us but apparently that is being ignored.
"Muhyiddin claimed he has the full support of all Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia MPs but of out 36 MPs, six has refused to support him, namely myself and my son Mukhriz.
"He doesn't have the majority, we do.
"We are going to see a man who doesn't have the majority support become PM," he said.
