ALOR SETAR: The Kedah state government seems to have crumbled after 23 assemblymen have indicated their loss of confidence in Kedah Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir (pic).

Kedah PAS deputy commissioner 1 Muhamad Sanusi Md Nor said the 23 included 15 from PAS, two from Barisan Nasional, two from PKR who had quit the party earlier on Tuesday and four from Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia.

"Due to the lack of confidence in the Mentri Besar, the PH-Bersatu coalition state has lost its majority.

"Therefore now a new government will take shape under Perikatan Nasional," he said at a press conference held at the Kedah PAS complex in Alor Setar on Tuesday (May 12).

Muhamad Sanusi, who is also the Jeneri assemblyman, named the four Bersatu assemblymen - Guar Chempedak assemblyman Datuk Dr Ku Abdul Rahman Ku Ismail, Bukit Kayu Hitam assemblyman Halimaton Shaadiah Saad, Kuah assemblyman Mohd Firdaus Ahmad and Ayer Hangat assemblyman Juhari Bulat.

"The four, however, have not resigned from their party. This is the second time there has been a vote of no confidence on Mukhriz. "I sympathise with him as a political leader, that he has had to face it twice in his political career. I feel bad for him," he said.
