KUALA LUMPUR : The Malaysian United Indigenous Party (BERSATU) has taken seriously the contents of the letter received from the President of UMNO dated 26th February 2021as it has a big implication in the future cooperation between UMNO, BERSATU and Perikatan Nasional (PN).
Secretary General of BERSATU, Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin said, in this respect, the party has made a decision to continue focusing on strengthening the work force with other partners in PN namely PAS, STAR, SAPP and Gerakan based on the honest and sincere “struggle” for the people to win in the coming General Election.
“BERSATU also stands strongly that the PN government led by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin is still stable and functioning to serve the people,” said Hamzah in a statement here yesterday (4th Mach).
BERSATU had their Supreme Council Meeting yesterday that was chaired by its president Tan Sri Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
In the meeting, BERSATU had expressed their gratitude for the success of PN government to face the challenges in administering the country for the past one year.
The statement added, within a year the PN government has successfully carried the principles of good governance, transparent and with integrity especially in protecting the freedom of the judiciary institution and the sovereignty of the law.
Meanwhile the Secretary General of UMNO, Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan said the UMNO Supreme Council Meeting had unanimously agreed for the UMNO President to send a letter to BERSATU informing about the decision that there will be no cooperation with BERSATU in the 15th General Election.
Ahmad Maslan in a statement yesterday said, UMNO is with the opinion that the cooperation of UMNO in PN can be continued until Parliament is dissolved.
Earlier Ahmad said, a special meeting was held on 15th February 2021 between UMNO, BERSATU and PAS where each party was represented by five senior leaders.
According to Ahmad, in the meeting the Prime Minister who is also the President of BERSATU has requested UMNO to make a stand on the cooperation with the party before any discussion on the seats allocation can be continued in the coming 15th General Election.
“For that reason, the UMNO Supreme Council held a meeting on 19th February 2021 to discuss the Prime Minister’s request,” said Ahmad. – Malaysia World News
