GEORGE TOWN: Pakatan Harapan plans to discuss holding a “grand coalition” meeting in January to face the next general election, says Lim Guan Eng (pic).
The DAP secretary-general said a discussion is set to be held in January 2021, but declined to divulge details.
“The idea of a grand coalition was proposed by Parti Amanah Negara chief Mohamed Sabu on Dec 26, who said he was prepared to bring the Opposition parties together, ” Lim said after taking a trip on the Penang ferry at Pengkalan Raja Tun Uda here on Thursday (Dec 31).
Lim said it was part of the political reset which was stated earlier in a joint statement on Dec 17. He added the statement was misinterpreted by some who thought that there would be a change in the coalition’s leadership.
“It is more to focus on people-centric issues rather than getting kleptocrats to join the coalition, ” he added.
During the Amanah convention in Melaka, Mohamad was reported as saying that the party is prepared to bring together the Opposition parties to form a grand coalition to face GE15.
