Perikatan govt in Perak must remain, says Ahmad Maslan

PETALING JAYA: The Perak government must remain under Perikatan Nasional despite Umno's backing in ousting Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu, says Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan (pic).

The Umno secretary-general said the Perikatan Nasional government in Perak must be maintained.

"The current state exco line-up must be continued. Umno is of the opinion that Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia and PAS must remain together in supporting the Perikatan state government in Perak.

"The vote of confidence in the Perak assembly today only involved the post of the Perak Mentri Besar and it does not change the status of the state government," said Ahmad Maslan who is also Pontian MP in a statement Friday (Dec 4).

Earlier, Ahmad Faizal, who is the state assemblyman of Chenderiang, lost a motion of confidence in him as the Perak Mentri Besar at the state assembly.

He received 10 votes in favour, while 48 voted against him, and one abstained.

State Opposition leader Dr Abdul Aziz Bari called for a bloc vote of confidence and was supported by Umno's Bukit Chandan assemblyman Maslin Sham Razman.

The Perak state assembly has 25 Umno assemblymen, 16 from DAP, five from Bersatu, five from Amanah, three from Keadilan, three from PAS, one from Gerakan and one independent assemblyman.
