It's weird, to say the least. I told my source (note: always challenge your source, no matter how many times he's been right in the past) that it's too fantastic!
I mean, just last September Anwar Ibrahim had demanded for a special parliamentary session to table a motion of NO CONFIDENCE against the Prime Minister. I was rooting for that unprecedented motion but any fool would know it was not going to happen.
And now, a month or so before Pak Lah is about to step down, they want to table another unprecedented something: a motion of CONFIDENCE in the Prime Minister!
Too fantastic to believe. Or is it?
Think again, Rocky: Hadi did go on record to say (after Pakatan Rakyat's emphatic victory in the Kuala Terengganu by-election) that Hadi wanted Pak Lah to stay as Prime Minister. Hadi said Pak Lah has got reforms to complete and that Pakatan Rakyat would be solidly behind the Prime Minister to continue as PM and not step down as scheduled so that he could achieve these reforms. Read Hadi to Abdullah: Stay on as PM, Jan 19.
Now, if I'm not mistaken, neither PKR nor DAP have commented on Hadi's statement. So an unprecedented Motion of Confidence is not a bad idea at all.
p.s. Pak Lah is due to step down as PM on March 31. The next day is April Fool's. Parliament starts next Monday.

Next, a motion of confidence in Pak Lah?
