KUCHING, Feb 29: Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) clarifies that it is not a member of the Perikatan Nasional led by the new prime minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
In a press statement issued by the Chief Minister’s Office today, it is pointed out that GPS only granted its support to the new coalition for the sake of the national interests.
The statement stressed that GPS maintained its stance as a political party friendly to Perikatan Nasional.
“However, in reference to a press conference by Tan Sri Muhyiddin, it must be clarified that Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) is not a member of the Perikatan Nasional but only as a political entity in Sarawak that gives support to Tan Sri Muhyiddin in the interest of the nation and to save Malaysia from political instability without sacrificing the interest of Sarawak.
“At this juncture GPS will only be a political party that is friendly to the Perikatan Nasional,” said the Statement.
The GPS government took the opportunity to Muhyiddin who is MP for Pagoh for being appointed as the eighth Prime Minister of Malaysia today by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong. — DayakDaily
