PETALING JAYA: Pakatan Harapan welcomes Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia’s intention to join the opposition coalition, PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail (pic) said Wednesday.

In a statement, Dr Wan Azizah invited Pribumi leaders to meet PKR leaders and discuss the potential alliance.

She was responding to Pribumi chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s overtures made on Tuesday to join Pakatan.

“I will discuss with the respective party leaders in Pakatan Harapan on efforts and steps we can take to strengthen this political union (between Pakatan and Pribumi),” she said.

“I will also invite the top leaders of Pribumi to sit with our party leaders and discuss a political strategy that can successfully save Malaysia from the current kleptocratic regime.”

Explaining that the Pakatan coalition is built on the spirit of the struggle for reformation and democratic values, Dr Wan Azizah added that she is confident that the new alliance will further strengthen the coalition in preparation for the next general election.

In announcing Pribumi's intention to join Pakatan, Dr Mahathir had also told the media that his party wants the coalition to be “rebranded” as a single entity.

He said this is part of their efforts to ensure straight fights against Barisan Nasional in the next general election.

Pakatan Harapan is currently made up of DAP, PKR and Amanah
