Status quo remains, Muhyiddin still PM even if majority support lost, claims lawyer

PETALING JAYA: Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin is allowed to maintain the status quo and there is no need for him to resign even if he admits to losing the majority support of MPs, claims constitutional lawyer Edmund Bon.

The Malaysian Centre for Constitutionalism & Human Rights (MCCHR) director said Muhyiddin need not tender his resignation unless he calls for polls and the King rejects this or another MP steps forward to claim the majority and it is agreed to by the King.
