Muafakat formally accepts Bersatu

PETALING JAYA: Muafakat Nasional has formally accepted Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia into its fold, said its joint secretary-general Tan Sri Annuar Musa.

He said the political pact between Umno and PAS got another boost when Bersatu stated its willingness to join them.

The matter had been discussed by the steering committee of Muafakat Nasional in a meeting on Aug 6 that was chaired by Umno deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan and PAS deputy president Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man, he said.

Annuar, who is also Barisan Nasional secretary-general, said an official letter was sent to Bersatu on Aug 13, with an official response by Bersatu president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin received on Aug 18.

Annuar also said that the Umno political bureau had discussed the latest developments on Aug 23, involving all Umno state liaison chiefs and Barisan state chiefs.

“Umno is concerned with efforts to unite the Malays and build a strong group with Islam and Malays as the core. This is our duty and priority – the thrust of Umno’s struggle.

“On that basis, Umno has agreed for Muafakat to accept Bersatu and would like to see that through their participation, the unity of the Malays will strengthen in line with Muafakat’s charter, ” Annuar said.

He also said that Muafakat Nasional was widely accepted by all races, citing the by-elections they had won since its formation.
