In the audio clip of more than four minutes, the unidentified person is heard complaining about the performance of Ahmad Faizal in the state administration.
The person, who was speaking with a few people who were believed to be umno assembly members, claimed that Ahmad Faizal was always late for meetings.
He stated that if a meeting was scheduled for 10 am, the Mentri Besar would only arrive sometimes until 11 am.
He claimed that Mentri Besar had a tendency to skip programs with the Sultan of Perak.
The individual alleged that other members of exco had told him that they wanted Ahmad Faizal replaced.
He claimed that he could be a candidate since he had no problems with Perak royalty.
When contacted on Thursday (April 18), the state executive advisor, Dr. Abdul Aziz Bari, said he had not heard the audio clip, which sounded like his voice.
Abdul Aziz said that in this age of technology, all sorts of things could be done.
"We do not even know if the source of the audio recording is authentic, it can be cured.
"I feel that the problem of losses in the movie Animation Park Studios is a much bigger problem than audio recording," he added.
During the last meeting of the state assembly, Abdul Aziz denied having left to expel Perak MB.
However, the head of Perak Barisan Nasional, Datuk Saarani Mohamad, confirmed at the last meeting in December that five members of Umno had met with Abdul Aziz over the alleged plot.
When asked about the audio clip, Saarani said he had listened to the clip that had gone viral.
"I will stick to what I said before, since I have five legal statements (DE) from the members of Umno who had met with the exco member in question, who wanted the support to be the next Mentri Besar.
"The five had also been summoned by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission and the police, and the SDs were handed over to the authorities.
"The contents in the audio clip are the same as those listed in the SD, but I'm not sure who recorded it," he said, denying that Umno had a hand in broadcasting the audio clip.
Assemblyman Datuk Shahrul Zaman Yahya, one of the five assembly members who was allegedly approached by the exco member, said he had only listened to the audio recording briefly.
When asked if he was one of the people with whom the individual was speaking, Shahrul said that the source of the video was not verified and that it was not correct for him to comment.
"There is nothing to hide (the fact that) that I am one of the five in the SD, and what is recorded in the audio is nothing new, and this is what we have heard before," he added.
