“His Majesty suggested that we cooperate with PH to form a unity government, but we have discussed this beforehand. We will not cooperate with PH.

“That has been the party’s stance since the beginning. For whatever purpose, we still disagree,” he said.

Earlier, Muhyiddin and PH chairman Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim had an hour-long audience with Al-Sultan Abdullah at Istana Negara.

Elaborating, Muhyiddin said he had also signed the ‘disagree’ section on a document related to the formation of the government.

“I was asked to sign a document asking if we agreed; I signed but on the disagree (section),” he said.
