Was AG right in saying new PM is not required to hold a confidence vote? Lawyers weigh in
Malay Mail | Lawyers are divided over whether the AG was right to say that the new PM need not seek a vote of confidence in Parliament. New Sin Yew said the AG is “right” as “there is no such requirement” in the Federal Constitution. MPs could show whether they supported a government through votes on other matters such the King’s speech and the budget.
