JOHOR BARU: Another politician has chimed in, asking Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to prove that he has the majority to form a new Federal Government as he has claimed.

Former Johor Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) chairman Mazlan Bujang said politicians claiming they had majority support from MPs was nothing new, adding that if Anwar's declaration that he had the numbers was true, then he should come forth and prove his claim.

“Even former prime minister and Langkawi MP Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has called on him to prove that he has the numbers and bring it to the Parliament.

“That is the best method, and we at the state-level are prepared for any outcome, ” said the Puteri Wangsa assemblyman.

Mazlan, who is also the Johor education, information, heritage and culture committee chairman, said this when met by reporters after the Ikon Siswa Johor 2020 Award officiating ceremony at Holiday Villa Hotel, here on Saturday (Sept 26).

He added that the Johor Perikatan Nasional government was in a strong position and would not be easily influenced by what was happening at the federal level.

“We have our own way in Johor, which makes us unique and the state Perikatan remains strong, ” he added.

On Wednesday (Sept 23), Anwar announced that he had majority support in Dewan Rakyat to form a new Federal Government.
