Hishammuddin As DPM In Preparation For Muhyiddin To Step Down : 25 BN MPs Have Lost Confidence In Zahid & Support H20

The current political goings-on appear to be a free-for-all in the race for the country’s leadership.

Following the Yang di-Pertuan Agong’s summoning of political party leaders to discuss the reconvening of Parliament and the nation’s failure to contain the Covid-19 pandemic, it may appear to some that Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s days as prime minister are numbered.

The rumour mill has also gone into overdrive after Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s suggestion for a National Operations Council, which many believe is an attempt to see the emergency that is supposed to end in August being prolonged indefinitely.

Current discussions at the Umno headquarters at Menara Dato Onn now include a surprising scenario.

Sources told The Vibes that the party’s MPs are being approached to vouch for Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein as the candidate for the deputy prime minister’s post.

What has set tongues wagging is that representations are being made to Umno members that Muhyiddin will step down as prime minister in the months ahead, allowing Hishammuddin to take over as the country’s ninth prime minister.

While many may be able to stomach Hishammuddin as the nation’s third prime minister in as many years following the 2018 general election that saw Barisan Nasional defeated for the first time, another scenario could be more difficult for Umno members to accept: Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali as deputy prime minister.

“Umno MPs may not be ready to accept Azmin,” said a source.

Azmin, seen as one of the key architects of the Pakatan Harapan government’s fall last year, is viewed as a divisive factor.

His handling of the economy as international trade and industry minister during the pandemic has been criticised. However, he does bring with him at least 11 MPs.

Hishammuddin’s hat being thrown in the ring does come as a surprise. Despite his seniority, the foreign minister does not hold any top post in Umno.

He is not even in the Supreme Council, although his grandfather, Dato Sir Onn Jaafar, was a founder of the party, and his father, Tun Hussein Onn, was Malaysia’s third prime minister.

Former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, meanwhile, is a cousin.

It is learnt that party members, as well as several non-Umno leaders, are being told that the Agong has consented to this proposal.

“However, we know this is not accurate, as His Majesty has yet to take a position on this. Moreover, he has not yet finished meeting all political party leaders,” said a high-placed source.

Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah is meeting Umno president Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi tomorrow.

Hishammuddin has yet to respond to queries.

Padang Rengas MP Nazri Abdul Aziz claims that a majority of BN’s 42 lawmakers have lost confidence in coalition chairperson Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Nazri told Malaysiakini that 25 declarations were signed giving Sembrong MP Hishammuddin Hussein the mandate to speak on behalf of BN to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

“When I found out the king wanted to meet party leaders, I didn’t trust Zahid anymore.

“In October, Zahid gave misleading information to the Agong that BN MPs supported (PKR president) Anwar Ibrahim as prime minister.

“I trust Hishammuddin to tell the truth that we don’t support Anwar or DAP,” Nazri said.

He declined to disclose how many cabinet members signed the declaration.

He also said the declaration was not meant to support Hishammuddin as prime minister.

In October last year, Zahid allegedly signed a letter to the king pledging support for Anwar.

Zahid’s office claimed the letter was fake, but former Umno secretary-general Annuar Musa said otherwise.

The Umno supreme council and general assembly had affirmed the party’s stance not to support Anwar as prime minister.

However, speculation is rife that Anwar had submitted to the king a list of 115 MPs who allegedly support his claim to Putrajaya during his meeting with the monarch on June 9.

Sinar Harian quoted an Umno supreme council source as claiming that some of the names on the purported Anwar list were also on the list of MPs backing Hishammuddin as their spokesperson.

Asked why he picked Hishammuddin to be their representative, Nazri said it was because they needed a leader whom they felt could have the Agong’s ear.

Hishammuddin’s wife Tengku Marsilla Tengku Abdullah is the Agong’s cousin.

The foreign minister is speculated to be pro-Bersatu, while Nazri has been a vocal critic of the party.

Asked how two opposites could unite against Zahid, Nazri said that this was a party matter.

“For me, it is a party matter. The Umno general assembly has decided, no Anwar no DAP,” he said.

Nazri added that his stance on Bersatu has not changed, but stressed that the general assembly also decided that ties with Bersatu would only end during the 15th general election (GE15).

“I’m a party man, the AGM decided to end ties in GE15, so not now lah,” he said.

Previously in 2018, Nazri as then BN secretary-general had tried to lobby support for Anwar – in an effort to save Umno from being dissolved.

“At the time, I felt I needed to be close to the next PM, and then coax him not to dissolve Umno.

“Because (then prime minister) Dr Mahathir Mohamad was set on dissolving us,” he said.

However, Nazri said support for Anwar was no longer necessary once Umno joined the government.

“I’m now comfortable that Umno will never be dissolved,” he added.

‘Not leader of party’

Meanwhile, former minister Zaid Ibrahim questioned Nazri’s position, saying the latter was confused.

“BN MPs can individually vote for Hisham as PM but to speak on behalf of BN it has to be done by leaders of Umno, MCA and MIC if they are still part of BN.

“There exists in our parliamentary rules the position of party leader and the party whip.

“The monarch usually does not get involved with those who wish to break ranks with the party leader or party whip. That’s why the monarch normally speaks to PM (as leader of the House ) and or to the opposition leader,” said Zaid who preceded Nazri as de facto law minister.

“Hisham is not leader of the party. Period. The fact that he might have majority support in the House is relevant only when he becomes a PM candidate,” Zaid told Malaysiakini.

    Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems
    different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
