JOHOR BARU: Mentri Besar Datuk Osman Sapian continues to enjoy the confidence of his party and will continue to helm the state’s top post.
Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said the party was still fully behind Osman.
He was asked to comment on rumours that there was a move to topple Osman.
Muhyiddin was speaking to reporters after attending the Johor Bersatu convention here Saturday.
On Friday, Tunku Mahkota Johor Tunku Ismail Ibni Sultan Ibrahim revealed that there was a move from an individual to topple Osman as the Mentri Besar.
“You are not even the Prime Minister. What makes you think that by trying to lobby having an MB who will be your puppet, you can control Johor?
You are lobbying for one of our exco to be MB. We know that. This is not 1992 anymore, my friend,” he tweeted on his official Twitter account on Thursday.
Tunku Ismail pointed out that Johor still had a ruling Sultan.
Recently, Bersatu supreme council member Datuk A. Kadir Jasin said if the Pakatan Harapan state government approved the deal, then it was no better than the previous government.
