PH leaders plan to meet PM next week over MoU with federal govt, says Guan Eng

MELAKA (Nov 19): Pakatan Harapan (PH) leaders plan to meet Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob next week to discuss the memorandum of understanding (MoU) it signed with the federal government.

DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng said this follows the issue of the RM100 million "gift" to former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak which was raised in the Dewan Rakyat during the winding-up session of the Supply Bill 2022 at the policy level by Finance Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz on Thursday (Nov 18).

“I already discussed with [opposition leader and PKR president] Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and [Amanah president] Mohamad Sabu yesterday (Thursday). The three of us agreed that the matter is not in line with the MoU we signed with the federal government.

“The three of us have decided to ask for a meeting with the prime minister to discuss the matter," he told a press conference here on Friday.

To the possibility of Perikatan Nasional, Barisan Nasional and PH all failing to get a majority in the Melaka state election to form a government, Guan Eng said the component parties of PH would discuss the matter before making any decision.

Polling on Saturday is being called following the dissolution of the Melaka state assembly on Oct 4 after four assemblymen withdrew support for the leadership of Chief Minister Datuk Seri Sulaiman Md Ali.
