KUALA LUMPUR: Former prime minister and Perikatan Nasional chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin claimed the public was losing confidence in Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's administration.

Muhyiddin said the declining ringgit and record-high foreign currency deposits, amounting to RM250 billion up to July last year, were indicators of the public's unease.

He said this situation surpassed the challenges that his administration had to deal with, even during the Covid-19 crisis.

"The public's lack of confidence in the stability of the ringgit is evident, with concerns about its continued depreciation. Despite government assurances, why does this doubt persist?

"If you ask me, it's clear people no longer believe in the prime minister's capability to steer the nation's economy," he told the Dewan Rakyat.

Muhyiddin said there has been a resurgence on social media of old videos featuring Anwar critiquing other leaders' ability to govern.

"Now, the people are telling him that 'you are the one who does not know how to govern'."

He said the prime minister should honour the promises he made to the people by resolving issues and walking the talk.

"Tambun (Anwar) was great at making promises when he was in the opposition. Now, people are looking for that person from the past."

Datuk Rosol Wahid (PN-Hulu Terengganu) intervened, asking Pagoh (Muhyiddin) whether he agreed that the prime minister should ask the finance minister to step down.

Muhyiddin agreed, but expressed scepticism about the feasibility of the proposal.

"I agree 100 per cent with that, but I believe it won't happen."
