A motion on vote of confidence turned out to be a NO CONFIDENCE VOTE with 49 to 10 Assemblyman plus 1 spoiled vote and thus Faizal has to adhere to the democratic voting rights of the house.
Does this have a Wider Implication for the Political Scene in Malaysia?
Only the hierarchy and the political powers have the answer to where the state or the country will be heading.
There are a number of conspiracy theories but ultimately the PEOPLE will have the final say in the ballot boxes.
We also know that Faizal was previously the MB for the Pakatan Harapan state government and was returned to power after his Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia party broke away to form Perikatan Nasional.
He was elected the deputy president of Bersatu earlier this year.
The writing is on the wall and there is somewhat a “huge push” to have the 15th GENERAL ELECTIONS as there is non stop politicking even though the #COVID19 is raging in our midst.
The VIRUS is INVISIBLE but the Political scenario in the country is TRANSPARENT in this social media and technology friendly era.
We just have to sit back and witness the events which will unfold soon.

PERAK Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu failed to secure a simple majority in a motion of confidence in the 14th state legislative assembly sitting.
The Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) deputy president only saw 10 out of 59 assemblymen supporting him.
A total 58 assemblymen voted against the motion while one was a spoiled vote.
The motion was tabled by Pengkalan Baru assemblyman Datuk Abdul Manaf Hashim and supported by Temenggor assemblyman, Salbiah Mohamad and Pasir Pinji assemblyman, Howard Lee.
It is believed that Ahmad Faizal, who is also Chenderiang assemblyman, is the first menteri besar to lose a vote of confidence.
According to the New Straits Times, the state legislative assembly sitting will be adjourned until next Wednesday.
After Perak Speaker, Datuk Mohammad Zahir Abdul Khalid announced the result, Ahmad Faizal stood up to express his gratitude to the House.
“I accept this with an open heart and I think during these difficult times, a political issue should not be prolonged.
“I would like to say thank you to the people and the state assembly. Thank you my friends in Pakatan Harapan. I miss you guys. I would also like to thank the state executive councillors,” he said, expressing hope that the newly-formed government in the future would prioritise the people.
