UMNO president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi (picture) said today that Bersatu has expressed its desire to join Muafakat Nasional, an alliance of UMNO and PAS.
Bersatu president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, who is also the Prime Minister, expressed this intention at his meeting with Barisan Nasional Members of Parliament at Parliament Building yesterday afternoon, said Ahmad Zahid.
“Bersatu’s wish will be discussed with PAS,” the UMNO president said in a statement.
He said the Muafakat Nasional Main Committee had earlier decided that UMNO and PAS would give priority to strengthening Muafakat Nasional.
“I will leave it to the Muafakat Nasional Main Committee to consider if Bersatu’s desire can further strengthen Muafakat Nasional in the interests of the people and country,” he added.
