Umno, BN MPs told to support PN until dissolution of Parliament, says Ahmad Maslan

PONTIAN (March 6): Umno and other Barisan Nasional (BN) Members of Parliament (MPs) have been asked to continue supporting the Perikatan Nasional (PN) government until Parliament is dissolved, said BN secretary-general Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan (pictured).

He said this support is important to ensure that the government could do its best to fight the Covid-19 pandemic.

“The present government is a coalition government; it's not only a PN government but also a BN government and a Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) government.

“So, until now ... as stated in the Umno Supreme Council meeting, we have asked Umno and [other] BN MPs to support the PN government until Parliament is dissolved, and this is important in fighting the pandemic.

“It is up to the government to decide when to dissolve Parliament, but we will stay with the coalition government until then,” he said, without ruling out the possibility of a new coalition government emerging after the 15th general election (GE15).
