PETALING JAYA (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Melaka Chief Minister Adly Zahari said on Tuesday evening (Feb 25) that he still remains at his post and that his administration is "functioning normally".
In a Facebook post accompanied by a picture of him at his desk in his office, Mr Adly said his office and the state Cabinet are operating as normal.
"The Malacca government administration and machinery are still functioning normally amidst certain developments at the federal government level," he said.
He had earlier thanked everyone for being given the chance to lead the state, in what appears to be a farewell message.
"Although it was a short time, I have given my best with all my energy to relieve hunger, evil, and sadness of everyone. I pray all are blessed by God, " he tweeted on Tuesday.
The political chaos from Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia pulling out of the Pakatan Harapan (PH) coalition may throw a few state governments into disarray.
PH had originally 15 out of the 28 state seats in Melaka and it is now only left with 13.
This comes as Melaka Barisan Nasional (BN) said that it has the support of 16 of the 28 seats in the state assembly, after two assemblymen left the state Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR).
Paya Rumput assemblyman Mohd Rafiq Naizamohideen left the ruling PH government on Monday, and is believed that another lawmaker has left PKR on Tuesday morning.
With PH expected to lose Melaka, speculations are rife that Lendu assemblyman Sulaiman Md Ali or Tanjung Bidara assemblyman A. R. Ismail Othman are expected to be appointed as the new Chief Minister.
