“We will have a formal MN meeting in the near future, but the exact date has not been set,” he was quoted saying.

Tuan Ibrahim who is also Kubang Kerian MP said that the current government led by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob was the result of cooperation between the three parties.

Ismail Sabri was sworn in as the ninth prime minister of Malaysia on September 21 after receiving support from 114 federal lawmakers making up the majority of the Dewan Rakyat.

The other candidate is Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim who has only managed to secure 105 support from his bloc.
