Nonsense, says Mat Sabu on claim of no-confidence vote against PM

PETALING JAYA: Amanah president Mohamad Sabu has rubbished speculations of a no-confidence vote planned against Dr Mahathir Mohamad, saying they are an attempt by rival parties to deflect public attention from investigations on their leaders.

“There is no question of a no-confidence vote against Tun. Amanah and other component parties of Pakatan Harapan (PH) are firmly behind Tun in efforts to reform and improve governance,” Mohamad said.

Talk of the no-confidence vote was triggered by a claim by PAS that it had pledged to support the prime minister in the event of a betrayal from PH politicians.

PAS secretary-general Takiyuddin Hassan even said that a letter of commitment to the effect was recently delivered to Mahathir.

The claim was also dismissed by PKR president Anwar Ibrahim, who said PAS leaders could no longer be trusted to speak the truth.
