KUALA LUMPUR: Pakatan Harapan has officially welcomed Pribumi into the Opposition pact. 

The decision was unanimously made at a meeting of the Pakatan presidential council on Monday. 

Pribumi - which is helmed by former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad - will now be registered as a member of the Opposition pact. 

"The Pakatan Harapan secretariat will issue a letter to Pribumi informing them of our decision," said the council in a statement jointly signed by PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng and Amanah president Mohamad Sabu.  

 "The meeting today also agreed to organise an immediate discussion among all four parties to form a joint manifesto and also create a new logo," the council added. 

Dr Mahathir, who is Pribumi chairman, announced last week that the party would join the Opposition in a formal pact.
