Ahmad Said skips sitting after failed bid to oust MB

 Kijal assemblyman Datuk Seri Ahmad Said, who tabled a motion of no-confidence against the Mentri Besar, was nowhere to be seen at the state assembly sitting on Wednesday.

However, his aim to dethrone Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Razif Abdul Rahman is expected to be pursued by the 14 PAS and one PKR opposition assemblymen.

Ahmad, a former mentri besar, moved the motion of no-confidence against Ahmad Razif on Tuesday. It was rejected by the Speaker  Datuk Mohd Zubir Embong, sparking an uproar in the House.

The Opposition members are expected to press on for the motion to be accepted by the Speaker.

PAS assemblymen were tight-lipped over what they planned to do when the sitting resumed on Wednesday.

Outside of the Dewan, some 300 people from Umno and the public gathered to show their support for Ahmad Razif.
