PUTRAJAYA: An agreement has been sealed between all coalitions and parties in the government, which is now known as the Malaysia unity government.
Describing the signing as an interesting and meaningful occasion and a landmark in the country's political history and landscape, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said the signatories had agreed to the way forward that will guarantee political stability and to uplift the nation’s good name and integrity.
“Our focus will be on good governance and to spearhead a more convincing economic growth.
“And all this cannot be achieved without the cooperation between Peninsular Malaysia and Sabah and Sarawak,” he told a press conference after witnessing the signing on Friday (Dec 16).
The agreement was signed by Pakatan Harapan, Barisan Nasional, Gabungan Parti Sarawak, Gabungan Rakyat Sabah and Parti Warisan.
Anwar explained the memorandum that was agreed upon was not for power or position.
“It is based on everyone’s desire for good governance and to see the economy grow and be vibrant.
“I hope this unity government will be a strong team that can help resolve any problems that arise and will be one voice,” he said.
After the 15th General Election last month, in which no coalition had the majority support needed to form the government, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong decreed a unity government be established.
