KUCHING: Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) is fully focused on Malaysia's economic recovery and the people's well-being and not on politicking, says Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof (pic).
The Deputy Prime Minister said GPS had stated many times that political stability was its priority.
Fadillah, who is GPS parliamentary chief whip, also dismissed allegations reported by a news portal of an attempt to topple the unity government, calling them unfounded.
"I will not comment on something that is not reliable," he said, adding that he did not know of such a move.
"I've not been approached. Nobody has approached us.
"We are just focusing on the work to make sure that Malaysia will be back to its glory days," he said, adding that the focus was on economic recovery.
"What we want is a stable government, a strong government that will focus on putting Malaysia back on track in terms of economic recovery, the well-being of the people and the wealth of the country.
"If we keep on politicking, we'll (fall) far behind in the Asian region," he told reporters at his Hari Raya open house here on Tuesday (April 25).
On allocations for Opposition MPs, Fadillah said Perikatan Nasional had not submitted a formal request stating what it wanted.
"I have not received any letter or offer. We are still waiting.
"They are the ones who want (the allocations), so they have to come up with (a proposal)," he said.
Fadillah also said Perikatan MPs had not met him to negotiate the matter.
"Only (Datuk Seri) Takiyuddin (Hassan) has met me unofficially. I've informed them to make an offer in black and white.
"As long as we have not received an official letter, negotiations will not take place," he added.
Kota Baru MP Takiyuddin is one of three parliamentarians named by Perikatan to negotiate with Fadillah on allocations for the Opposition.
The others are Opposition leader Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin and Putrajaya MP Datuk Dr Radzi Jidin.
