Malaysian govt and opposition reach deal on confidence-and-supply agreement

Hebahkan !!!

Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob and Malaysia’s main opposition coalition on Sunday (Sept 12) announced a breakthrough in talks for a confidence-and-supply agreement (CSA), saying that a “memorandum of understanding” will be inked when Parliament reopens for the year on Monday.

An accord has been up in the air since it was first broached at a meeting between Pakatan Harapan (PH) chiefs and Mr Ismail on Aug 25, just days after he was sworn into office with a slim majority in Parliament.

The Prime Minister, who is an Umno vice-president, can count on the support of just 114 members of the 222-seat Parliament, where two seats are currently vacant.
