Kuala Lumpur: Perak MB Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu said that he will not resign until a successor is appointed by Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah. Faizal Azumu, who already promised a smooth transfer of power after losing the motion of confidence, said that the state needs a leader to continue to run the government.
Speaking to the reporters on Saturday, he said that he will leave the office once the new candidate is appointed to hold the state’s responsibility.
“Allow me to conduct the government’s operations. If I resign now, who is going to hand over the cheques and land titles that are scheduled to be given to the people?”, he said at the State Secretariat Building.
Earlier, on 4 December, Perak MB had faced a major setback after losing a motion of confidence in the state assembly, receiving only 10 votes in favour of him. The result shows that 48 assemblymen voted against him.
