PETALING JAYA: It’s now a 100% no from the opposition to Muhyiddin Yassin’s proposal.
Pejuang has also rejected the prime minister’s plan for a more inclusive administration, leaving his solution to the political impasse in tatters.
In a statement, Pejuang president Mukhriz Mahathir described Muhyiddin’s offer as a bribe and a desperate attempt to hang on to power.
“He has no right to make such an offer even if he had the legitimacy of a prime minister, let alone now when he’s lost his majority,” he said, adding to the voice of all the other opposition parties.
Mukhriz said Muhyiddin should respect the Federal Constitution and resign as prime minister now that he has lost support.
Umno, Pakatan Harapan, Warisan, Parti Sarawak Bersatu, MUDA and Upko have all announced their rejection of Muhyiddin’s proposal for reforms, which was tied to him winning September’s confidence vote.
In a televised address earlier today, Muhyiddin had proposed term limits for prime ministers, equal allocations for MPs, anti-party hopping legislation and other reforms if MPs kept him in power.
Despite opposition parties rejecting Muhyiddin’s idea, some MPs, namely DAP’s Ong Kian Ming and Tony Pua have said that Muhyiddin’s proposal should be considered.
