A leaked audio clip has exposed the resistance posed by three Pakatan Harapan ministers towards a proposal to choose Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s successor in government via parliament.

According to a report by Free Malaysia Today, the three were PKR leaders Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution and Xavier Jayakumar and Amanah number two, Khalid Samad, all of whom are stunch loyalists of PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Saifuddin was of the opinion that a parliamentary process was not necessary as Mahathir himself was appointed “outside of Parliament” in the wake of the 14thgeneral election.

“The appointment of the prime minister took place outside Parliament, at the palace, with confirmation from four parties who won the majority,” Saifuddin said during the 21st February PH presidential council meeting.


PETALING JAYA: A leaked audio clip has exposed the resistance posed by three Pakatan Harapan ministers towards a proposal to choose Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s successor in government via parliament.

According to a report by Free Malaysia Today, the three were PKR leaders Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution and Xavier Jayakumar and Amanah number two, Khalid Samad, all of whom are stunch loyalists of PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.




Saifuddin is said to have opposed Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali, then deputy PKR president, who disagreed with the idea of leaving the appointment of Prime Minister in the hands of the Pakatan Harapan presidential council.

The report states that Azmin was inclined towards a parliamentary process for said appointment as it was in the spirit of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia.

Saifuddin, however, was of the opinion that a parliamentary process was not necessary as Mahathir himself was appointed “outside of Parliament” in the wake of the 14thgeneral election.

“The appointment of the prime minister took place outside Parliament, at the palace, with confirmation from four parties who won the majority,” Saifuddin said during the 21st February PH presidential council meeting.

“It was in the palace that the announcement and appointment of the prime minister was made after His Majesty was convinced that the four parties forming the majority were chosen by the people in a lawful general election.

“Did we turn our back on the constitution? No,” Saifuddin was reportedly heard saying in an audio recording of the meeting.

Xavier is said to have echoed Saifuddin’s view. According to the report, Xavier positioned that it was up to PH to name the next prime minister.

“If you want to rule, and we want to have a stable government, and we want to keep the term going and have another term, I think it is we who have to make that decision, Tun.

“Not the people outside, not Parliament. It is we that have to decide on this,” he reportedly said.

The FMT report also makes note of the back and forth involving other Pakatan Harapan leaders, namely Gobind Singh Deo, Syed Saddiq Abdul Rahman and Mahathir himself.
