IPOH: All 59 Perak state assemblymen, including 24 assemblymen from Pakatan Harapan, have agreed on a motion to give their full confidence for newly-appointed Mentri Besar Datuk Saarani Mohamad.
During the state assembly sitting on Wednesday (Dec 16), state Speaker Datuk Mohamad Zahir Abdul Khalid said the support for Saarani was unanimous.
“I would like to thank all assemblymen for showing maturity during the voting, ” he said.
Khalid said the motion was submitted by Umno’s Trong assemblyman Jamilah Zakaria.
“The motion was submitted today at about 10.40am, ” he said.
The motion then was supported by Umno’s Belanja assemblyman Khairudin Abu Hanipah.
Saarani was appointed as the 14th Perak Mentri Besar on Dec 10.
Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu resigned as mentri besar last week after losing the majority confidence of the state assembly.
Saarani is now tabling the 2021 state budget.
