PETALING JAYA: The formation of the new Federal government to replace the Pakatan Harapan (PH) led government would most probably use the 2009 Perak constitutional crisis as a guide.

An Umno source revealed that several political party leaders had already met Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah, on the purpose of forming the new federal government.

 “I was made to understand that the Yang di-Pertuan Agong advised them to refer to the previous Perak case ... that is what I was informed.

 “At the moment, we already have 139 Parliamentary seats and the figure is sufficient for us to form the government,” the source informed the NSTP.

The 2009 Perak constitutional crisis took place when three Pakatan Rakyat state assemblymen defected, causing a collapse of the state government.

Following this, Sultan of Perak, Sultan Nazrin Shah refused Mentri Besar Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin’s request to dissolve the state assembly and call for new elections.

Instead, Barisan Nasional (BN), with support from the three defecting assemblymen, formed a new state government.
