The Perak government is still intact, according to Menteri Besar Ahmad Faizal Azumu.

In a statement today, he said he still commanded majority support of the state's assemblypersons and the Perak ruler has been briefed.

He urged the people to help with efforts to overcome the political crisis affecting the country so that the government can focus on developing the nation and looking after the people.

Faizal is one of two Bersatu state lawmakers in Perak.

The Pakatan Harapan state lawmakers comprise 18 from DAP, six from Amanah and four from PKR.

On the opposite bench are 25 lawmakers from Umno and three from PAS.

As of yesterday morning, Faizal only had a two-seat edge over the opposition.

Although Bersatu is no longer part of the Harapan coalition at the federal level, their allegiances at the state level remain unclear.
