IPOH: Perak Parti Amanah Negara has expressed their disappointment over the new state Perikatan Nasional (PN) coalition.

Its secretary Salman Saleh said that the party believed that the coalition has destroyed the mandate given by the public.

"We were shocked over the statement given by Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu including the announcement of four assemblyman from Pakatan Harapan who announced their departure and join Perikatan.

"This also includes the decision made by former Amanah assemblyman Hasnul Zulkarnain Abd Munaim (Titi Serong) to be an independent," he said in a statement on Monday (March 9).

It was reported earlier that Hasnul has declared himself as independent together with two DAP assemblymen, Paul Yong Choo Kion (Tronoh) and A. Sivasubramaniam (Buntong), shortly after the announcement of the new state government by Ahmad Faizal.

There are 59 seats in the state and Perikatan now hold 32 majority seats with 25 Umno representatives, three from PAS and four from Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia.
