KUALA LUMPUR: Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin insisted that he still has the majority support and will not step down as Prime Minister.
In his special address today, Muhyiddin said he will table the motion in the Parliamentary sitting next month.
He also mentioned that the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah has approved his proposal this morning.
"Meanwhile, the Cabinet and the government administrative machinery will continue to function to exercise trust and responsibility to the people and the country, particularly in tackling the Covid-19 pandemic.
"I will ensure that the vaccination programme that is currently underway will not be disrupted and continues to be implemented on schedule," he stated.
According to Muhyiddin, he is aware of the allegations of him disobeying the King, but insisted that what he has done is merely to preserve the supremacy of the Constitution and defend the dignity of the institution of the Constitutional Monarch.
"I will not sacrifice my principles and renounce my oath of office to fulfil all duties honestly, shed allegiance to the King and the Nation, as well as preserve, protect and defend the Constitution," he asserted.
Also seen at the special address were nine other Cabinet ministers including Datuk Azmin Ali, Datuk Ismail Sabri and Datuk Maximus Ongkili.
