Claims of Sulaiman forced to sign resignation letter as CM not true, says Melaka Umno


MELAKA: Claims of Datuk Seri Sulaiman Md Ali (pic) being forced to sign his resignation letter as Melaka Chief Minister are not true and baseless, said Melaka Umno deputy liaison chairman Datuk Seri Mohamad Ali Mohamad.

He said Sulaiman, who is Lendu assemblyman, will continue to hold the post of Melaka Chief Minister until the end of his term as had been agreed.

"The top Umno leadership and five Umno division heads in Melaka, namely Kota Melaka, Tangga Batu, Hang Tuah Jaya, Jasin and Alor Gajah have agreed for Sulaiman to be the Chief Minister.

"We hope Sulaiman will continue to hold the post until the end of his tenure, which is for five years," he told reporters here.

Mohamad Ali said this when met at the Sungai Udang state constituency and Tangga Batu parliamentary constituency Aidilfitri Open House on Saturday (May 7) night.

He said this in response to an allegation that was uploaded on Facebook on Saturday that Sulaiman has been forced to a sign a resignation letter as Melaka Chief Minister.

Mohamad Ali also said that the Melaka Umno will continue to support Sulaiman as Chief Minister.

Sulaiman was sworn in as the 13th Chief Minister of Melaka before the Yang di-Pertua Negeri Melaka at the Governor's Office on Nov 21 last year after Barisan Nasional won the Melaka state election.

It was Sulaiman’s second appointment as the Chief Minister of Melaka. He was first appointed to the post on March 9, 2020, replacing Adly Zahari, who was appointed the 11th Chief Minister of Melaka on May 11, 2018. – Bernama
