KUALA LUMPUR: Discussions between Pakatan Harapan (PH) and Barisan Nasional (BN) revolve around forming a unity government, not a PH or DAP administration, says PKR president Anwar Ibrahim.
Anwar was responding to BN treasurer-general Hishammuddin Hussein saying he will not support any cooperation with PH to form the government.
Hishammuddin, the Sembrong MP, had said BN should not work with Anwar or DAP, adding that he was ready to be sacked by Umno for his stand.
“My response (to Hishammuddin) is that there is no DAP government or PH government. It is a coalition, a unity government,” said Anwar.
The PKR president said although PH had more votes in comparison to Perikatan Nasional, they still required the support of other parties, adding that both BN and PH needed to focus on forming an inclusive government.
“The fundamental issue here is not to compromise on governance and to focus on the economy. That’s what is agreed upon.
“We have to move on. As we have said before we have to do whatever it takes to save the country.”
He maintained that no condition was attached by either coalition just as long as a unity government was formed.
“We must have adequate representation in any coalition. (All) parties must be represented. No unreasonable condition (was given),” he said.
