GE15: Takiyuddin not given mandate to negotiate coalition govt with BN, says Muhyiddin

KOTA BARU: Perikatan Nasional denies giving a mandate to PAS secretary-general Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan to negotiate a coalition government with Barisan Nasional after the 15th General Election (GE15).

Perikatan chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said the purpose of Perikatan contesting in GE15 was to form a government without having to join Barisan or Pakatan Harapan.

"As Perikatan chairman, I never gave a mandate to Takiyuddin to negotiate with Barisan Nasional for the purpose of forming a government after GE15.

"I pray that with the permission of Allah S.W.T and the strong support of the people, Perikatan Nasional will win a sufficient number of seats to form the federal government and the governments of the states involved in GE15," he said.
