Bersatu supreme council decided party’s exit from Pakatan — joint statement

KUALA LUMPUR (May 19): A joint statement today by 27 Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) members including the party’s vice-presidents and supreme council members claimed that the council during its meeting on Feb 23, 2020 decided to leave Pakatan Harapan and form a new political coalition with other parties outside Pakatan.

The 27 Bersatu members said they fully support the formation of Perikatan Nasional (PN) as a coalition of political parties, which uphold objectives contained in the PN memorandum of understanding. The Bersatu members said that for the sake of the people’s well-being and the country’s political stability, they had agreed that Bersatu joins PN.

“This decision is clear and does not need to be disputed. We also wish to state [our] undivided support for the Perikatan Nasional government under Bersatu president [and Prime Minister] Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin,” they said.

The 27 Bersatu members, who issued the statement, included Bersatu vice-presidents Tan Sri Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman and Datuk Abdul Rashid Asari.

The list included Bersatu supreme council member Wan Saiful Wan Jan and the party’s Negeri Sembilan state chief Tan Sri Dr Rais Yatim.
