PETALING JAYA: The Pakatan Harapan leadership has dismissed rumours that former deputy prime minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin (pic) will be made parliamentary Opposition Leader.
“No such statement has been made. All the parties are happy with Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim (as Opposition Leader),” said Amanah deputy president Salahuddin Ayub after a Pakatan Harapan presidential council meeting Tuesday.
DAP national organising secretary Anthony Loke shared similar views, saying at the PKR headquarters here that his party has full confidence in Anwar.
Asked if Muhyiddin will be given a post if he were to join a Pakatan Harapan party, Salahuddin said it will be considered, but not as a leader.
He also said that Pakatan Harapan will welcome Muhyiddin as well as Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir and Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal should they want to join a Pakatan Harapan party.
“The door will always be open. The principle is that we are open to all but we also have to honour them, so we won’t discuss the invitation openly,” he said.
Muhyiddin and Mukhriz were sacked from Umno on June 24 while Shafie left the party on the same day after being suspended.
