MUHYIDDIN Yassin today insisted he was still legally the prime minister as he has not been summoned by the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong, who appoints the country’s leader, Malaysiakini reported.
While campaigning in Sabah’s interior, Muhyiddin said the palace had not summoned him over recent claims he had lost the majority in the Dewan Rakyat.
Muhyiddin said he doubted the claims of opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim.
“I am suspicious. Is it (Anwar’s claim) real or was it just a political ploy… We will abide by the constitution,” Muhyiddin said.
Muhyiddin added that the attorney-general has assured him that he was still prime minister pending notice from the palace.
Two days ago in Kota Kinabalu, Muhyiddin said the prime minister must be done appointed according to constitutional provisions and that only the king had the power to do so.
