Kadir: Motion to replace speaker 'indirect' measure of PM confidence vote

Modified 12 Jul 2020, 9:44 am

Bersatu supreme council member A Kadir Jasin has suggested that the motion to replace Parliament speaker in tomorrow’s parliamentary session could be used as an indirect means to gauge support for Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin.

“The motion could be used to show confidence in the prime minister or as an indirect no-confidence vote against him depending on the ‘yea’ and ‘nay’ from members (of Parliament),” the veteran journalist (above) said in his blog posting today.
