KUALA LUMPUR: There is no consensus to dissolve Barisan Nasional as a coalition, says Barisan deputy chairman Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan during a press conference after the Barisan supreme council meeting on Friday (March 8).

He said a technical committee would be formed soon to look into the issues brought by the component parties.

Mohamad said MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong had tabled the party's resolution during the coalition's supreme council meeting.

"We have not come to a consensus on the resolutions tabled by MCA, but we have taken serious note on it.

"As such, we have decided to form a technical committee to see the grievances faced by the component parties and see how to resolve it," he said.

Mohamad added that even MIC had voiced out the issues faced when Barisan was still the ruling government.

Asked as to why a consensus could not be reached, Mohamad said both Umno and MIC did not see a need to dissolve Barisan.

"We (as a coalition) have a lot of history and contributed a lot to the nation," he added.

In December last year, the MCA central committee stated that it had met and unanimously resolved to affirm the resolutions passed at the party's 65th General Assembly on Dec 2.

Among the resolutions passed was to request the dissolution of Barisan.
