TANJUNG MALIM: Muafakat Nasional would not be dissolved and would only continue to grow stronger, says Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi (pic).

The Umno president said Muafakat would continue to serve the people and not run away as it nears the first year anniversary of its establishment next month.

"Similar to a tree, Muafakat is the strong root that will remain still and protect the people," he said at a rally at Dewan Tan Sri Ghazali here on Sunday (Aug 23).

"We have also remained sincere and I would like to express my gratitude towards PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang and his party for always being there with Umno," he said, adding that Muafakat was supported by at least 12 parties.

Muafakat, a pact between Umno and PAS, was formed in 2019. A charter was signed between the two parties in September last year.

Also present during the rally were Umno secretary-general Tan Sri Annuar Musa, Perak Umno chairman Datuk Saarani Mohamad, PAS vice-president Idris Ahmad, state PAS commissioner Razman Zakaria and Barisan Nasional's candidate for the Slim by-election, Mohd Zaidi Aziz.

Zaidi will face against two Independent candidates, Amir Khusyairi Mohamad Tanusi and Dr S. Santharasekaran in the by-election.

Polling is on Aug 29.
