PETALING JAYA: PAS is ready with the statutory declarations (SDs) from its MPs to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong on who they want as prime minister, although the deadline for submission is 4pm tomorrow.
Party deputy president Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man said confirmation from each MP would be requested once a person claims to have majority support.
“I would like to inform everyone that PAS is ready with the SDs of all party MPs,” the Kubang Kerian MP said.
He also welcomed the suggestion of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong that the well-being of the country and the people should be given priority.
“The King called for its leaders to work together to address the Covid-19 and economic crises and the people’s well-being.”
He added that the King had also explained the process of appointing the prime minister through the SDs of each MP, which must be submitted to the palace before 4pm tomorrow (Aug 18).
Earlier, several party leaders including Tuan Ibrahim representing PAS, were at the Palace for an audience with the King this afternoon at around 1.30pm.
This comes after Muhyiddin Yassin resigned as the prime minister yesterday (Aug 16).
Party leaders were also believed to have expressed their views on the forming of a new government.
