PETALING JAYA: Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia has pledged to continue supporting the leadership of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob until the expiry of his term, says the party’s supreme council member Datuk Razali Idris.

He added Bersatu would not be withdrawing its support for the current prime minister as stated in their agreement.

“Not only Bersatu, but also Perikatan Nasional is ready to defend Ismail Sabri’s government until the end as in the agreement, unless it is violated.

“They do not need to urge Muhyiddin (former prime minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin) to withdraw support.

“They (Umno) can do it (withdraw their support against Ismail Sabri) themselves,” he was quoted as saying to a Malay daily.

Razali was referring to Umno’s recent challenge to Muhyiddin challenging him to withdraw support for the current government.

This came after it was reported that Bersatu information chief Datuk Wan Saiful Wan Jan recently reminded Ismail Sabri that Bersatu’s support for his government was conditional and that the issue would be brought up during the campaigning period in the Johor state election.

Former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had also claimed that Bersatu had threatened to withdraw support from the current government several times.

To this, Razali said Najib, as chairman of the Barisan Nasional advisory board, can form a pact to withdraw support for the current government instead of urging Bersatu to do so.
