KUCHING, Feb 24: Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin announced that the party has decided to quit the Pakatan Harapan (PH) coalition.

Muhyiddin said the decision was made during the party’s special meeting held yesterday (April 23).

“All assemblymen from Bersatu will quit Pakatan Harapan. All of them have signed a Statutory Declaration (SD) to continue support and give their full trust to Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as the prime minister of Malaysia,” he said in a statement today.

Muhyiddin added that the decision was made after considering the country’s current political development and its future.

In 2016, Bersatu made a pact together with Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), Democratic Action Party (DAP) and Parti Amanah Negara (PAN) to join the Pakatan coalition.

The pact was form as an effort to go up against the Barisan Nasional (BN) in the 14th general election (GE14). — DayakDaily
