It’s of­fi­cial – Pribumi is now part of Pakatan

The Star Malaysia - - Nation -

KUALA LUMPUR: Pakatan Hara­pan has of­fi­cially wel­comed Parti Pribumi Ber­satu Malaysia (Pribumi) into the Op­po­si­tion pact. The de­ci­sion was unan­i­mously made at a meet­ing of the Pakatan pres­i­den­tial coun­cil in Par­lia­ment House yes­ter­day.

Pribumi, which is chaired by for­mer prime min­is­ter Tun Dr Ma­hathir Mo­hamad, will be reg­is­tered as the pact’s fourth mem­ber.

“The Pakatan Hara­pan secretariat will is­sue a let­ter to Pribumi in­form­ing them of our de­ci­sion,” the coun­cil said in a state­ment. "The meet­ing also agreed to or­gan­ise an im­me­di­ate dis­cus­sion among all four par­ties to draft a joint man­i­festo and cre­ate a new logo.”

The state­ment was jointly signed by PKR pres­i­dent Datuk Seri Dr Wan Az­izah Wan Is­mail, DAP sec­re­tary-gen­eral Lim Guan Eng and Amanah pres­i­dent Mo­hamad Sabu.

Last week, Dr Ma­hathir an­nounced that Pribumi would join the Op­po­si­tion.

The agree­ment would see Pakatan Hara­pan par­ties and Pribumi con­test­ing the next gen­eral elec­tion un­der the same ban­ner, with a sin­gle man­i­festo and one can­di­date per seat to en­sure a straight fight with Barisan Na­sional.
