BN rep who table no-confidence motion can be sacked- T’ganu MB

Bernama – Saturday, April 11

KEMAMAN, April 11 (Bernama) — Terengganu Menteri Besar Datuk Ahmad Said said today that any Barisan Nasional (BN) assemblyman who tables a motion of no-confidence against him can face disciplinary action including expulsion.

He was responding to a rumour that such a motion would be tabled during the three-day sitting of the State Legislative Assembly that will be opened by the President of the Regency Advisory Council, Tengku Sri Panglima Raja Tengku Baderulzaman, on Monday.

Ahmad, who is also Umno state liaison chairman and Kijal assemblyman, said tabling a motion of no-confidence against a menteri besar in the state assembly was a serious matter.

“If it comes from the opposition, we in the government will reject it.

“If it is tabled by a BN representative, he has to be expelled — that’s normal. If he gets support, the assembly will be dissolved — that’s just it. We have to accept it if he wants to do it… what else can be said,” he told reporters after opening the Kemaman Recreational Park and Mini Zoo in Bukit Takal here.

On another rumour that several menteri besar including him would be replaced following the recent power transition at the federal level which saw Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak becoming Prime Minister, Ahmad said he knew nothing about it.

“In Terengganu, one has to ask the Tuanku (His Highness the Sultan),” he said and rapped the media for what he described as sensationalising an unconfirmed issue.
