Azmin & co wants ‘national reconciliation’, GPS leaves premiership issue to Agong

PUCHONG: The 11 ex-Pakatan Harapan leaders who turned independent called for a national reconciliation, led by Interim Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

The pack leader, Gombak MP Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali, said everyone should rise above petty politics and put people’s aspirations first.

“After the rakyat rose to defeat a kleptocracy in the 14th general election, they now want a government that is stable and focused on resolving the people’s issues.

“These include reviving the economy, generating growth, creating jobs and implementing policies based on shared prosperity, regardless of race and religion,” he said.

Currently, Mahathir is serving in an interim capacity while waiting for the Yang d-Pertuan Agong to decide which coalition could form the next government, following the political impasse triggered by Bersatu and Azmin’s team’s exit from Pakatan Harapan.

On related matter, Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) said that the coalition would leave it to wisdom of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to select a new government for Malaysia.

In a statement, GPS chairman, who is also Sarawak chief minister, Datuk Patinggi Abang Zohari Tun Openg also said that his coalition would always make decisions, with the interest of Sarawakians being paramount.

“The important thing now is Malaysia needs political stability in order to move forward.

“And we need to this fast as we are currently facing economic problems as well as the COVID-19 outbreak that need to be addressed effectively,” he said.
