PETALING JAYA: Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz (pic) has signed a statutory declaration (SD) supporting Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob as prime minister and has urged all Umno MPs to do the same to end the ongoing political turmoil.

Nazri said he signed the SD at a hotel in Kuala Lumpur on Sunday (Aug 15) afternoon.

"I've already signed and I think all Umno MPs should support this, including those who are opposed to Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

"He is gone now, so there's no reason not to sign," Nazri told The Star.

Sources told The Star that there is an ongoing effort to collect SDs supporting Ismail Sabri as prime minister.

Meanwhile, other sources in Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia have indicated that with Muhyiddin allegedly deciding to resign as prime minister, a succession plan is in place to keep the Perikatan Nasional government intact after his departure.

"This is the exit plan and he can retire smoothly," he said.

Sources also said that a political bureau meeting involving Bersatu division leaders would take place at an unspecified location on Sunday (Aug 15) night.

Muhyiddin is expected to have an audience with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong on Monday (Aug 16).
