The already difficult task of rallying enough lawmakers to support a no-confidence motion against embattled Prime Minister Najib Razak may have just become insurmountable after Parti Islam seMalaysia (PAS) indicated it was non-committal on how it would view such a vote in Parliament.
“We will wait and see whether there is a need (to support it),” said PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang after the opposition Islamic party’s mass rally in Kelantan on Saturday night.
Questions about a vote against Datuk Seri Najib came about after an MP from Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) filed a no-confidence motion in Parliament on Saturday.
