Kuala Lumpur, Nov 22 — Perikatan Nasional (PN) has rejected the Yang di-Pertuan Agong’s proposal for a unity government between the coalition and Pakatan Harapan (PH).
This was revealed by (PN) chairman Muhyiddin Yassin, who said His Majesty made the proposal during their audience, which was also attended by Anwar Ibrahim.
“I was asked to sign a document if we agreed. I signed, but said ‘do not agree’.
“That is a stand we have taken,” he said.
Muhyiddin also showed an official proof of receipt from the palace of 115 statutory declarations showing that he had the majority support to form the government.
“That is why we were confident that we could form the government. But as you know, we were told it was not sufficient. I don’t know the reasons behind this. But here is the proof.”
“As such, Tuanku proposed that we join forces with PH to form a unity government.”
At the press conference, Muhyiddin said PN was firm about their stand.
“But on whatever basis, PN will not agree to it” he reiterated.
