KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 5 – Vice-President Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin seconded suggestion made by party President Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi for the dissolution of Melaka State Assemble as the amicable solution to the political crisis.
He said the voters must be sought again to choose who should lead the State.
“Vaccination rate in the country is permissable for an election be held. No excuse to defer the democratic process in choosing a government,” he said in a FB posting.
What happened in Melaka, he said is an indication how party-hopping should be halted while a general election must be called soon.
Yesterday, four Melaka Assemblymen namely Datuk Seri Idris Haron (BN-Sungai Udang), Datuk Nor Azman Hassan (BN-Pantai Kundor), Datuk Norhizam Hassan Baktee (Bebas-Pengkalan Batu) and Datuk Noor Effandi Ahmad (Bersatu-Telok Mas) announced their distrust in the government led by Chief Minister Datuk Seri Sulaiman Md Ali.
The BN State Government previously had 17 seats comprising of 14 (BN-UMNO), two (Bersatu) and one Independent while the Opposition has 11 (DAP-7), (PKR-2) and (Amanah-2).
With the announcement, Sulaiman now is reduced to 13 seats.
