Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

KUALA LUMPUR - The Home Ministry confirmed that there have been activities to topple the government through undemocratic means but will not reveal details due to security reasons.

Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said police were still collecting evidence on the matter.

"The government is always serious on anyone who tries to bring down a legitimate government through undemocratic means. It is also aware that this illegitimate effort will affect the country's economy.

"The government has detected certain activities to topple the administration without going through the democratic process.

"However, evidences of these activities can't be revealed due to security reasons and police are still collecting detailed collection on this matter," he told Nasruddin Hassan (Temerloh-PAS) in Parliament.

Nasruddin had asked the Home Minister for evidences of a plot to topple the government.
