Last update: 21/02/2019
KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 21 (Bernama) -- The Pakatan Harapan (PH) Presidential Council has full confidence in the leadership of Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, council secretary-general Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah said today.
He said the stand negated any allegation of a plot within the PH coalition of parties to table a vote of no-confidence in Dr Mahathir’s leadership.
“As far as I know, such an issue has never come up. The PH Presidential Council is united and matured. We have never questioned the leadership of Tun Dr Mahathir as the prime minister.
“I think that (allegation) is only a rumour or mere political speculation,” Saifuddin, who is the Foreign Minister, told reporters after opening the Ampang Hilir campus of the Kuala Lumpur International School here.
Water, Land and Natural Resources Minister Dr A. Xavier Jayakumar and Deputy Education Minister Teo Nie Ching were also present at the event.
Asked whether the allegation had anything to do with a recent meeting between Dr Mahathir and PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang, Saifuddin said politics was something dynamic.
He said Dr Mahathir was “a very experienced political figure” and in PH itself, he had never closed the door to anyone.
