Umno leaves it to BN MPs to decide on next PM

Umno said it would leave it to the 42 Barisan Nasional (BN) MPs to decide on the coalition’s prime ministerial candidate.

The party’s Supreme Council member Mohd Sharkar Shamsuddin revealed this after a meeting with component leaders at its headquarters here tonight.

“We agreed to leave it to BN MPs to decide on their candidate for prime minister,” he said when met by reporters.

Among those present were Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, deputy president Mohamad Hasan, and chairman of the BN advisory board Najib Razak.

Zahid and Mohamad are also BN chairman and deputy chairman, respectively.

Also present were MCA president Wee Ka Siong and MIC deputy president M Saravanan.

Earlier today, former BN secretary-general Annuar Musa claimed the coalition had obtained the majority support needed for its candidate to be the next prime minister.

This afternoon, MPs were told to provide statutory declarations (SDs) to declare their support for a prime minister candidate and submit it by 4pm tomorrow.

PAS has since said it had collected the SDs from its 18 MPs.

The nation is in search of a new prime minister after Muhyiddin Yassin stepped down from the post yesterday after losing majority support in the Dewan Rakyat.

He will, however, serve as caretaker prime minister until his successor is appointed. FMT
