KUALA LUMPUR: Gerakan will remain as the third force in the country’s political arena as it places importance on the party’s ideology, said its president Datuk Dr Dominic Lau.

“The principles and ideology of the party is very clear and simple.

“We are aiming for political stability in our country and we fight for all, ” Lau told reporters after hosting Gerakan’s Chinese New Year open house in Kuala Lumpur on Saturday.

After Gerakan exited from the Barisan Nasional coalition, Lau said the party was still positioning itself as the third force in the nation’s politics.

Lau was asked about the possibility of Gerakan joining Pakatan Harapan or cooperating with it, following the attendance of Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad at the party’s open house.

Lau said it had always been Gerakan’s tradition to invite the Prime Minister to its annual Chinese New Year open house.

Also present were Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali, Economic Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Azmin Ali and wife Datin Seri Shamsidar Taharin.
