Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein has rejected the notion that there’s a political ploy by UMNO members for him to ascend as Malaysia’s 9th prime minister should Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin step down.
According to The Vibes, there are also rumours of Perikatan Nasional election director Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali being vouched for as his deputy. The reason being? He has at least 11 MPs behind him, the publication suggested.
This comes following the Yang di-Pertuan Agong’s meeting with political party leaders to discuss 2 main things – allowing Parliament to reconvene and the failure of combating the Covid-19 pandemic in the country. We’re all eager to see what will transpire once Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah meets with the political party leaders.
Last night at 9:47pm, Hishammuddin took to Twitter to address the rumours head on saying, “As the article states, these are rumours and I don’t entertain rumours. We should just concentrate on our #COVID19 response and strengthening our economy.”
Will this change anything for the people though?
