As reported by Sinar Harian , she also said that tabling a vote of confidence for the prime minister’s leadership in Parliament is allowed under the provisions of the Constitution. It is also found in the practice guidelines of Commonwealth countries and has been practised by the United Kingdom government before, she added. “The move to get a vote of confidence among MPs (in the UK) was made following a Bill that the government wanted to introduce in 1993 but was not passed in Parliament. “As for the establishment of a new coalition government, it is not in violation of the Federal Constitution and certainly does not violate the mandate and trust of the people if it is implemented,” she said during Sinar Harian’s forum titled “Future Steps Through the National Unity Government” in Shah Alam yesterday. Other panellists included Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) academic, Syed Agil Al Sagoff; former Election Commission deputy chairman, Datuk Seri Wan Ahmad Wan Omar; and former inspector-general of police (IGP), Tan Sri Musa Hassan. After their central leadership meeting last week, PAS announced its intention to table the motion on the grounds that it would clear any doubt over the transition of power between Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and PKR President Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim. The Islamist party had claimed the purported uncertainty was adversely affecting the national economy and hindering the prime minister from carrying out his duties. Earlier this month, a Singapore daily reported that Umno may throw its backing behind Dr Mahathir to serve out a full-term in an attempt to prevent Anwar’s succession to the seat of power. However, Dr Mahathir denied the rumours, saying his party, Bersatu, is working with both Umno and PAS to form a new government that will replace PH. On Thursday, after a meeting with Dr Mahathir, Anwar said that the prime minister had no part in a purported conspiracy to prevent him from taking the top job. Anwar said he acknowledged Dr Mahathir’s desire to continue leading the country until the conclusion of the 2020 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) Summit, which Malaysia is hosting in November. The PKR president said he also informed Dr Mahathir that PH leaders and some allies still held firm to the agreement from January 2018 to support the latter as the prime minister and for Anwar to succeed him. The succession plan was initially presented as happening within two years of the 2018 general election, but it was later revealed that there is no formal agreement on when it must happen. The lack of any formal timeline has led to incessant speculation, rumours and intrigue about the transition, forcing both Dr Mahathir and Anwar to repeatedly insist that the promised transition will take place.

Just because it’s legal doesn’t make it right. Like stupidity. in Msia plenty of coconut academics spewing fake news 'Legal, don't betray rakyat'...besides irony of the highest order, this is utter crap. May i know where this dumb academic came from? For scammers and schemers, any backdoor entity is their favourite option coz there is no front door opening for them. The academics can never be academic in the real meritocracy world.
Does he know the meaning of Betrayal? Professor kangkung l guess. Must be a very low class individual with dubious qualification, with racist bloodline and above all, an imbecile. Academic? Really? I am doubting that as well. The people didn’t vote for certain parties because they didn’t want them. So if they manoeuvre their way in through such tactics, it’s a betrayal of the voters.

You just kicked your voters in the mouths. If so then this one must be 'backdoor' academic too! How it can't be betrayal cause in last GE the people clearly voted for PH. How on earth you know it's not betrayal? Did they get the referendum from voters who voted for PH? Doesnt betray❓Ha... Ha... Haaa.... 😂 🤣
The mere look at the panelists tells a thousand stories about what they would say. This academic is talking rubbish. Who will move the motion? Is it a Federal Minister or a MP. If it is moved by an MP it becomes a private membe motion and doesn't rank priority. Expert? How a govt is formed does not matter but what that matters is it must not be led by corrupted leaders.
WTF is a backdoor gov? Sounds like DeepState What does academics know about except what they don’t know. They don’t even know what they don’t know. It's bullshit claim,s by misslead academic,s . Ah yes, another 'expert'. Like the one who disparaged Dr M. Or the ones who gave false advice about Rome Statute.
