Citing his disagreement to work with UMNO, he mentions that Muhyiddin Yassin is more relaxed towards this approach.

“As I had repeatedly stated, I am against any form of cooperation with individuals who are known to be corrupt and was part of the kleptocratic administration which the Pakatan Harapan government worked hard to get rid of.”

As things stand, Pakatan Harapan has withdrawn its support for Tun M, and instead backed Anwar Ibrahim since his announcement to form a unity government without UMNO.

After a series of monarch interviews with 222 MPs, under Malaysia’s Constitution, the King has the authority to appoint any individual to the premiership if he believes they are able to command the majority of the house.
