None of PAS MPs supporting Anwar, declares deputy president

Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man says he ‘can confirm that not one PAS MP is with Anwar Ibrahim’

PETALING JAYA: PAS has declared that not one of its MPs will be supporting Anwar Ibrahim after the PKR president announced today he has received majority support from MPs to form a new government.

The party’s deputy president, Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man, said all 18 PAS MPs will remain in support of Muhyiddin Yassin’s leadership.

“The Cabinet meeting just concluded. I confirm that not one PAS MP is with Anwar Ibrahim.

“An official statement will be released soon,” he told FMT.

PAS vice-president Nik Mohd Amar Abdullah asked the public to wait for comments from the prime minister this evening.

Earlier, Anwar announced that he has received “strong and convincing majority support“ from MPs to take over the government from Muhyiddin.

“At this moment, Muhyiddin Yassin’s government has fallen,” he said at a press conference, adding that the King has consented to grant him an audience.
