AYER TAWAR: The new party founded by former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad will have no effect on Barisan Nasional especially in the coming 14th general election, said Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir (pic).

He said the establishment of a new party would only fire up unity among Umno members to ensure Umno continued to remain strong and relevant.

"In the tradition of our party, whenever we are challenged, we will strengthen unity among ourselves.

"The only impact the new party will have on Barisan or the local political situation is the addition of a new party in the country," he told reporters after attending the Aidilfitri Open House of Pasir Panjang state assembly, Datuk Rashidi Ibrahim at Arena Square here, Saturday.

Zambry was commenting on a statement by Dr Mahathir on July 14 where he announced the setting up a new party that will become a component party of the opposition coalition in the coming general election. - Bernama
