Kuala Lumpur: Perak Menteri Besar Ahmad Faizal Azumu has lost a motion of confidence that was tabled in the state assembly. He lost the support of the majority of the State Legislative Assembly after the motion failed to garner enough votes.
Perak Speaker Mohammad Zahir Abdul Kalid announced that out of the 59 assemblypersons, 10 voted for the motion, 48 voted against, and one abstained.
The motion was submitted by UMNO Pengkalan Baru assemblyman Aznel Ibrahim, who was appointed as the MB’s political secretary last month.
However, there is no other motion from any other assemblyman.
Umno leader has earlier said that all was not well between the two Malay parties in the state as ties between Umno and PPBM had been strained over a number of issues.
