KUALA LUMPUR: The question on whether Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin should step down are among issues to be discussed by Barisan Nasional MPs in a meeting at PWTC, today.
Confirming the matter, Sembrong Member of Parliament, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said he wanted to hear the views of the BN consensus on the matter first.
“We will discuss. I want to hear BN’s views first,” the Barisan Nasional Treasurer told reporters when met at Menara Dato Onn on Monday when asked if the issue of Muhyiddin’s resignation as prime minister would be discussed after there was pressure to do so.
