PETALING JAYA: Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has come under fire for rejecting the Yang di-Pertuan Agong’s proposal to form a unity government with Pakatan Harapan.
Umno supreme council member Datuk Dr Puad Zarkashi (pic) described the Perikatan Nasional chairman as arrogant and disrespectful to the King.
“Muhyiddin blames the Palace for saying the statutory declarations (SDs) were incomplete but did not reveal the identities of the 115 MPs supporting him,” said Puad on Facebook on Wednesday (Nov 23).
Puad said Muhyiddin’s arrogance showed he was vengeful and does not deserve to be prime minister again.
The Bersatu president had said on Tuesday (Nov 22) revealed that he had turned down the proposal for a unity government with Pakatan and was firm in the decision.
“I submitted 115 SDs to Istana Negara and have the proof of receipt, but the King said this was not enough and I don’t know why,” he said in a press conference at his residence.
The King is scheduled to meet 30 Barisan MPs this morning, but the coalition said it was seeking an extension on the meeting to iron out certain details.
