Attorney-General Idrus Harun said there is no need to call for a confidence vote to prove Ismail Sabri’s majority in Parliament. He stated that his appointment as Prime Minister is valid under Article 40(2)(a) and 43(2)(a) of the Federal Constitution. He said that Agong had already received declaration letters from 114 MPs pledging their support to Ismail Sabri and he also held an audience with all of them.

He stated that if a confidence vote is called after being appointed by the King himself to prove Ismail’s support, this would question His Majesty’s absolute power. Earlier, before Ismail Sabri’s appointment, the Agong announced that whoever will be appointed as the country’s ninth prime minister, will have a confidence vote in the Dewan Rakyat.
Ismail Sabri was appointed as the country’s ninth prime minister by Agong. This came after Muhyiddin Yassin resigned from his post after losing majority support in parliament.
