GPS members will support Muhyiddin in a vote of confidence, Sec-gen says

When a confidence motion is presented in Parliament next month, the 18 members of the Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) would back Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, coalition secretary-general Datuk Sri Alexander Nanta Linggi said.

According to him, the decision was taken during a special meeting at the PBB headquarters with GPS chairman Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Openg, Sarawak’s chief minister.

In a statement, Nanta said that GPS has also taken notice of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong’s proclamation that the administration of the day’s federal government would continue until a decision is made during the Parliament session to be held next month.

He stated that GPS believed the prime minister’s choice to present a vote of confidence in himself to be a brave and smart action, as well as the appropriate way in line with the Federal Constitution.

Nanta added that GPS also considers the move to draw the public into the political unrest and seek to bring down the federal administration at a time when the people and country are confronting the Covid-19 pandemic, which would only create concern among the people.
