KUCHING: Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) supreme council member Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah sees no issue with Umno combining forces with PAS in Peninsular Malaysia to make BN stronger in the coming general election.
“Anything that could bring strength and unity to BN and Malaysia is very much welcome and if this electoral pact could serve that purpose, then why not?”
“What is important is that the pact must be able to unite Malaysians and not otherwise,” said the state Tourism Arts Culture Youth and Sports Minister when asked to comment on Umno giving the green light to its president Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to negotiate with PAS leaders on the electoral pact.
Umno Information Chief Tan Sri Annuar Musa reportedly said at a “Anda Tanya Kita Jawab” (You Ask We Reply) dialogue session with three university student leaders in Kuala Lumpur yesterday that the pact would be the first time the idea of an alliance between the two parties surfaced. -TheBorneoPost
