: Democratic Action Party (DAP) has urged Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to continue to lead the country as prime minister.
DAP secretary-general, Lim Guan Eng said that they will propose this at the Pakatan Harapan (PH) Presidential Council emergency meeting to be held tonight.
The DAP stand was made following news of Dr Mahathir's resignation as Prime Minister on Monday.
Commenting on the Cabinet position, Guan Eng said that the matter would be decided by the Attorney-General.
According to Guan Eng, DAP has in principle condemned the treachery of some PH leaders who tried to establish a government through the back door.
He said the efforts to establish the new government were clearly contrary to the mandate given by the people in the 14th General Election (GE14) in 2018.
Commenting on his meeting Dr Mahathir earlier today, Guan Eng admitted that he was shocked by his decision to resign.
"This is a very shocking decision.
"Tun Mahathir had been clear in his stand against UMNO and had tried to reject UMNO as a kleptocratic government during the 14th general election," he said. Note: The Presidential Council meeting scheduled tonight has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.
