KUALA LUMPUR, Oct. 16 — Parti Amanah Negara’s 11 federal lawmakers were poised to submit motions of no-confidence against Tan Sri Yassin as the minister, according to vice president Hasanuddin Mohd Yunus.

He said the party was preparing the needed documents for its MPs to provide notice to the Speaker.

“We are encouraging them to send these in today,” he was quoted as saying.

Another vice president, Datuk Mahfuz Omar, confirmed that he will submit the notice.

Under Parliament’s Standing Orders, MPs must provide two weeks’ notice of any motion that they propose to bring to the attention of fellow lawmakers.

Parliament will sit from November 2 to December 15 for its next meeting.
