PORT DICKSON – The Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) wants an election pact with PAS to avoid three-cornered fights during the coming 14th General Election (GE14).
Its deputy president, Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir said PPBM would hold talks with PAS to form an election pact.
“Like it or not, we (PPBM) need to have a date to finalise if we can have a pact with PAS, even if it is an electoral one,” he told reporters here today.
Mukhriz was here to attend the four-day PPBM retreat programme which began on Monday.
Also attending the programme were party chairman, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and president, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang was reported saying that PAS would stick to its decision not to work with PPBM for as long as it collaborated with DAP and Parti Amanah Negara.
Meanwhile, Mukhriz said for the GE14, PPBM would concentrate on Malay-majority areas. – BERNAMA
