MELAKA: Sungai Udang assemblyman Datuk Seri Idris Haron and three other state lawmakers have declared that they have lost confidence in the leadership of Chief Minister Datuk Seri Sulaiman Md Ali.
The three others are Pantai Kundor assemblyman Datuk Nor Azman Hassan (Umno), Telok Mas assemblyman, Noor Effandi Ahmad from Parti Pribumi Bersatu and Independent lawmaker Datuk Norhizam Hassan Baktee.
Idris said both Nor Azman and him are willing to face any disciplinary actions from their party leadership for their actions.
The assemblymen claim that with this, the current Melaka state government has collapsed.
The Perikatan Nasional government came into power in March 2020 following the defections of four assemblymen from the previous Pakatan state government.
The four were Paya Rumput assemblyman Datuk Mohd Rafiq Naizamohideen and Telok Mas assemblyman Noor Effandi Ahmad - both from Bersatu - as well as Rembia rep Datuk Muhammad Jailani Khamis (formerly PKR, now Umno) and Pengkalan Batu assemblyman Datuk Norhizam Hassan Baktee (formerly DAP, now Independent).
Melaka has 28 state constituencies and Perikatan had the support of 17 lawmakers.
