New Prime Minister Should Focus On Stability, Recovery – Salleh

KOTA KINABALU: The new Prime Minister should seriously consider having a bipartisan, small and adept Cabinet to bring about much needed stability in the country, said Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) Backbencher Chairman Datuk Seri Dr Salleh Said Keruak.

The former Sabah Chief Minister said the reality is that no single political party can form the Government today and this calls for 
realignment and compromises. 

” But real focus should be on recovery. Parties should keep this in mind and trust the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong to choose the right Prime Minister to carry out the responsibility,” he said in his latest Facebook posting.

Yesterday, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin resigned after only 17 months of being the country’s 8th Prime Minister.
Also resigned were 29 members of his Perikatan Nasional (PN) Cabinet.
The Pagoh MP presented his letter of resignation to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah during an audience with the King at Istana Negara .
Muhyiddin, who is also Bersatu president, was sworn in as Prime Minister on March 1 last year following the resignation of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad on Feb 24.
