KUALA TERENGGANU (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Former Terengganu chief minister Ahmad Said has tabled a motion of no-confidence against current Terengganu Chief Minister Ahmad Razif Abdul Rahman at the state assembly sitting on Tuesday (March 7).

However, state assembly Speaker Mohd Zubir Embong rejected the motion.

Datuk Mohd Zubir Embong earlier adjourned the sitting for lunch break before deciding on the motion.

Datuk Seri Ahmad, who is Kijal assemblyman, tabled the motion while debating on the motion of thanks on the Sultan of Terengganu's speech.

He claimed that the administration of Datuk Seri Ahmad Razif had tried to ridicule him in matters relating to housing, the setting up of Kuala Nerus district and fast-food outlet Chicken Cottage.

Chicken Cottage is a Malaysian-owned halal fast-food chain which set up its first outlet in Terengganu in December last year.
