Muhyiddin hopes the clashes between Perikatan and BN in Melaka will not affect relations with the federal government | Malaysia
SUBANG, Nov. 6 – Perikatan Nasional (PN) Chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin hoped his coalition’s upcoming clashes with informal ally Barisan Nasional in the Melaka state elections “will not create a major problem at the federal level“, where both are part of the government.
He said that the federal government was comprised of many political parties to ensure stability and that Umno Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaacob was ready to work with all of them.
“Even the current government is ready, for example, to sign a letter of intent with the opposition. And I think that’s fine about the federal government.
“So hopefully it won’t lead to any major problems in any way, and I think Prime Minister Datuk (Seri) Ismail (Sabri Yaacob) will hopefully work well with the other cabinet members, whether they come from Barisan Nasional or from Perikatan Nasional” he said in a press conference after announcing PN candidates for Melaka PRN today.
Muhyiddin added that PN, as a coalition, “respected” BN’s decision to go to Melaka alone.
However, he said that the situation also gives voters in Melaka the opportunity to make the right choice between PN, BN and Pakatan Harapan (PH), who will also hold all 28 seats.
“Now it is much clearer that there may be three big coalitions, but I believe and I trust that the people in Melaka know the political situation very well. You saw what Perikatan Nasional did especially during my tenure. ”As Prime Minister.
“They live on in any situation and we believe we have strong support for Perikatan (Nasional) in Melaka,” he said.
Regarding the declarations of duty for BN candidates, Muhyiddin said PN and their respective party parties trusted their candidates for loyalty.
“To date there is no suggestion to use the official SD or anything like that because we are sure that all candidates are loyal enough to what their respective parties have delivered,” he said.
