Show us your hand, Shafie tells PM

KOTA KINABALU: Parti Warisan Sabah wants the Prime Minister to immediately call for a parliamentary vote of confidence and not wait until September to clear the air over his supposed majority support.

Its president Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal said, “We demand Parliament convene immediately to show whether Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin indeed has the support in the House”.

“This will clear the air and there is no need to wait until September,” he added.

The Opposition MP also said the motion of confidence should be the sole issue debated in the immediate sitting.

“It should not be mixed up with other issues concerning the 12th Malaysia Plan and the Budget that will be discussed in the parliamentary meeting scheduled in September,” he said yesterday.

Mohd Shafie reiterated his party’s “firm stand” not to support the current Perikatan Nasional government.

He said all eight MPs from the party were intact and repeated their call for the Prime Minister and his Cabinet to resign.

Warisan’s stand is shared by Muar MP Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman, Sri Aman MP Datuk Masir Kujat, Selangau MP Baru Bian and Tuaran MP Datuk Seri Wilfred Madius Tangau.

“Any news or reports being spread claiming that Warisan supports Perikatan is false and malicious,” Mohd Shafie said in apparent reference to a letter on a Warisan letterhead spread on social media claiming that it was supporting the Perikatan government.
