KUALA LUMPUR — Feb. 24, 2020: The Pakatan Harapan ruling coalition today lost its majority in Parliament following the departure of Pribumi Bersatu and the resignation of 11 PKR MPs from the party.

This latest development has left Pakatan its partners Warisan and Upko with only 102 MPs, short of the 112 simple majority.

The coalition originally had 139 MPs in the 222-seat Parliament, comprising 50 from PKR , DAP (42), Bersatu (26), Warisan (9) and Upko (1).

Pribumi Bersatu president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin announced the exit of the party, depriving Pakatan of 26 MPs.

This was followed by the resignation of 11 PKR MPs, including deputy president Datuk Seri Azmin Ali, to form an independent bloc in Parliament.
