SEREMBAN, Feb 28 2020: Umno deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan today said the Parliament should not be the forum to elect a Prime Minister.
In his statement, Mohamad advised Malaysians to let the Yang di-Pertuan Agong finds the solution out of the current political impasse based on the provisions in the Federal Constitution.
“We should also respect the role and wisdom of the King and not pre-empt His Majesty in any situation,” he said, adding that the crisis needs to be quickly resolved.
Interim Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad yesterday announced that a special Parliament sitting will be held on March 2 to determine who will be the next prime minister.
He claimed that it was the conclusion of his meeting with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong at the Istana Negara that same day.
