PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian United Democratic Alliance (Muda) acknowledged criticisms and doubts from the Pakatan Harapan coalition parties on the party’s intentions to join Pakatan formally.
Its deputy president Amira Aisya Abdul Aziz said they are ready to officially meet the coalition to address any differences and issues that stand in the way of a possible pact.
“That is why the Muda leadership is ready to hold official mee- tings with Pakatan to hash over issues.
“The aim is to ensure that when we enter the elections, the people understand what the Opposition has to offer,” said Amira in a statement yesterday morning.
Amira also said the party is committed to ensuring that the possible new relationship between the party and Pakatan can expand beyond cooperation for the 15th General Election.
On Friday, Muda president Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman told The Star that the party had submitted a letter to join Pakatan. During the Johor state polls, Muda contested seven seats, clashing with PKR in the Larkin state seat, which Barisan Na- sional later won in a six-cornered fight.
