S'gor Gerakan chairman appointed state Perikatan liaison vice-chairman, says Azmin

PETALING JAYA: The Selangor Perikatan Nasional state liaison committee has appointed state Gerakan chairman Datuk Ang Chin Tat as vice-chairman, says Datuk Seri Mohd Azmin Ali.

“This is the first involvement of Gerakan at the state level following the announcement by Perikatan chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin with regard to Gerakan joining the Perikatan coalition on Feb 11,2021, ” Mohd Azmin said in a statement on Monday (Feb 22).

Mohd Azmin, who heads Perikatan in Selangor, noted that Gerakan’s entry into Perikatan was of great significance as it proved the coalition’s policy of inclusiveness and diversity.

“I am confident that this policy will strengthen Perikatan’s effort to mobilise participation and support of the rakyat, particularly from the millennial generation, ” he said.

He added that Perikatan remained committed to embracing the new paradigm when championing the rakyat by infusing dynamism into politics based on values.

As for Perikatan in Selangor, Mohd Azmin said that the coalition here would focus on implementing policies with regard to the social-economic well-being of the people.

He added that Selangor Perikatan will also work closely with its coalition members in preparation for the coming general election.

Besides Ang, Selangor PAS commissioner Datuk Dr Ahmad Yunus Hairi and Selangor Parti Bersatu Pribumi Malaysia chairman Datuk Abdul Rashid Asari were also appointed as Perikatan state vice-chairmen.

On Feb 11, Gerakan joined Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia, PAS, Sabah STAR and the Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) as members of the Perikatan coalition.

In the 14th General Election, Gerakan lost all the 11 Parliamentary and 31 state seats it contested.

As Pakatan Harapan took over the Federal Government, Gerakan decided to quit Barisan Nasional in June 2018 to become an Opposition party.

The Pakatan government however collapsed in February 2020, which led to the formation of Perikatan.
