KUALA LUMPUR: Muafakat Nasional (MN) has officially extended an invitation to PPBM to join the alliance, Umno’s Annuar Musa said today.
He said Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang and Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin (who is PPBM president) had discussed the matter months ago.
“We have sort of extended our invitation officially. So, we are not in a hurry.
“Each party, I’m sure, has certain procedures (regarding the matter) which they have to bring to their respective supreme councils for discussion,” Annuar, who is also Federal Territories minister and Barisan Nasional secretary-general, said.
MN is a political alliance comprising Barisan Nasional and PAS.
“We’ll just wait for their decision. What is important is that among PPBM, Umno and PAS, we must maintain a harmonious engagement and working relationship,” he told reporters after visiting Taman Awam Bukit Kiara here today.
He said a concrete solution will be achieved soon before MN’s first anniversary of formation on Sept 14.
