IPOH: The Opposition bloc asked Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu to resign as the Mentri Besar since he has lost the motion of confidence in the Perak state assembly.
“This is part of the democratic system, where the rule of law was followed accordingly." said Perak DAP chairman Nga Kor Ming (pic).
“I hope all parties will remain calm, as the assembly's speaker has stated that he would be meeting with the Sultan of Perak to brief on the latest happenings, ” he told a press conference at the state DAP headquarters here.
Nga added that what had taken place was a historic day for Perak, and he added that he is confident that the new state government would be formed according to the rule of law as well.
Nga said that the 24 assemblymen from the Opposition were all against Faizal leading the state.
Meanwhile, Perak PKR vice chairman Tan Kar Hing said Faizal must make way for a new state government and Mentri Besar.
“From our side, 24 votes did not support Faizal, and the remaining votes are from the current state government. So this shows the state Perikatan Nasional is fragile, and there are internal squabbles among them, ” he said.
