JASIN: The political development in Melaka will not affect the administration of the state government.

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Sulaiman Md Ali said all state executive council (exco) members still continue to discharge their duties in order to allay fears and concerns among the people following the spread of Covid-19.

“Who wants to be the Chief Minister, go ahead. Please meet (with your respective) leadership (top political leaders at the state level).

“I am here (discharging my duties as usual) and as of today, the state government is still proceeding as it’s business as usual.

“On the political development in Melaka, I also want to see (whether) tomorrow, I will still be here or otherwise.

“This is politics. Speculation is normal in the political game. However, I am given the mandate to lead the state government and administer the state. I will continue carrying out my duties. I will step down if I am asked to do so,” he told reporters after visiting Kampung Ayer Merbau here today.

It was reported that political turmoil is brewing in Melaka following rumours that four assemblymen in the government bloc will switch camp to the opposition pact.

Rumour has it that among the four people are former Melaka chief minister Datuk Seri Idris Haron, who is the Sungai Udang assemblyman, and Pantai Kundor assemblyman Datuk Nor Azman Hassan.

There are another two assemblyman names speculated to join Idris and Nor Azman. They are are Pengkalan Batu assemblyman Datuk Norhizam Hassan Baktee and Telok Mas assemblyman Datuk Noor Effandi Ahmad.

Sulaiman was also asked if he would meet the four assemblymen as speculated by the media.

“Why should I meet them? Any person who wants to be the Chief Minister can come (and see me) and meet the top leadership,” he said.

Commenting on the same issue, Sulaiman said if PH has the sufficient amount of statutory declarations to prove that they have the numbers to form the next state government, they should seek an audience and present the document to the Melaka Yang di-Pertua Negeri, Tun Mohd Ali Mohd Rustam.

“If they are confident that they have enough SD (numbers of support to form the next state government), they can present it.

“I am more interested and concerned with the issues affecting the people. And I believe the people will evaluate for themselves and punish (the culprits) when the time comes,” he said.

The current state leadership under Sulaiman, who is from Barisan Nasional, began in March last year after the collapse of the previous PH state administration.

That event had occurred following the move by four assemblymen, who had withdrawn support for PH.

There are 17 assemblymen in the 28-seat state legislature who are currently aligned with the state government. They comprise 14 from Umno, two from Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia, and one independent.

The opposition, on the other hand, command 11 of the total state seats in Melaka.
