PETALING JAYA: Umno veteran Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah has urged the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and the Malay Rulers not to entertain any request from Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin for a declaration of a state of emergency.

Such a request would be “an illegitimate request and based on flimsy excuses”, he said today.

Tengku Razaleigh, the longest-serving member of the Dewan Rakyat, also described Muhyiddin as no longer having any legitimacy to be prime minister by having refused to submit himself to a vote of no confidence in the Dewan Rakyat.

“I also have information to suggest that the prime minister does not command a simple majority of the members of the Dewan Rakyat. Otherwise, why is he afraid to submit himself to a vote of no confidence?” he said.
