KUALA LUMPUR: Perikatan Nasional is set to form a presidential council comprising its party leaders, says its secretary-general.

Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainuddin said the decision was made by its supreme council meeting on Tuesday which discussed preparations for the next general election.

“The supreme council agreed on the proposal for a presidential council, which will comprise all leaders of parties under the Perikatan Nasional government, as a platform to discuss policies and strengthen ties between us, ” he said

He said the meeting was chaired by Perikatan chairman and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

Among those present were PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang, Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) president Datuk Seri Yong Teck Lee, Parti Solidariti Tanah Airku (STAR Sabah) president Datuk Seri Dr Jeffrey Kitingan, and Bersatu deputy president Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu.

Hamzah said Perikatan had decided to begin its flagship programme nationwide to aid the people.

Selangor Bersatu chairman Datuk Abdul Rashid Asari said the appointment of a Selangor Perikatan chairman would be in a month or two.

Selangor Perikatan was drawing up strategies to strengthen cooperation within the ruling coalition and with allies, he said.
