Idris and three different assemblymen pulled out their sponsorship for the state government drove by Sulaiman Md Ali on Oct 4, making the Umno-drove government fall.

The other three were Nor Azman Hassan (BN-Pantai Kundor), Noor Effandi Ahmad (Bersatu-Telok Mas) and Norhizam Hassan Baktee (Ind-Pengkalan Batu).
