Malaysia opposition leader Anwar claims support of majority to form government

On September 23, Malaysia’s opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim said that he had the support of a strong majority to form a government.   “Conclusively, we have a strong, formidable majority. I am not talking about four, five or six. I am talking about much more than that,” Anwar said. “With a clear and indisputable support and majority behind me, the government led by … Muhyiddin Yassin has fallen.” 

Parties in the ruling coalition called it a “cheap publicity” stunt. 

Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin said Anwar must provide evidence, and “until proven otherwise, my National Alliance government still stands firm and I am still prime minister.” He urged Malaysians to stay calm. 

In a separate statement, the secretaries-general of parties under the ruling coalition said they remain firmly behind Muhyiddin and rejected Anwar’s assertion that he has majority parliamentary support to form the government.
