PETALING JAYA: Fate has brought Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia, Umno and PAS together as allies and it is a divine opportunity to put aside politics and be united, says Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin
The Bersatu chairman said, in his presidential address at the third Bersatu annual general meeting Saturday (Nov 28), that he would like to stay away from talking politics, he had to address the issue of a perceived "cold relationship" between Bersatu and Umno.
"I usually keep away from talking politics but today is a political stage.
"Some say Bersatu and Umno have no chemistry. After all, some of us, including myself, were from Umno but that is all in the past.
"Fate has brought us rivals together as allies in the Perikatan Nasional government and this is divine intervention.
"This is a test from God, which is bitter, but it is our opportunity as Malays and Muslims to unite after having been so divided.
"Bersatu, Umno and PAS are standing together and we should look at the bigger problems.
"Why don't we take this divine opportunity to put aside politics and be united?" Muhyiddin added.
The virtual AGM via FB Live linked Bersatu leaders and members gathered at 14 places nationwide including hotels and state party headquarters.
The supreme council was gathered in Kuala Lumpur.
