Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has dismissed a Johor Umno suggestion that Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin be appointed as the new Johor mentri besar, saying the Home Minister has something else to do, and that the winning party gets to name the chief, not the losers.

Dr Mahathir, who is also chairman of Pakatan Harapan and Bersatu, told reporters that after launching the Malaysia Autoshow 2019 at the Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang (MAEPS) on Thursday.

Asked about the statement by the Sultan of Johor a day earlier calling on certain quarters to stop meddling in matters concerning the state, Dr Mahathir said Johor is a part of Malaysia.
