Tony Pua of DAP urges Pakatan to consider Muhyiddin’s offer if they don’t have a majority

If PH does not have a majority in the Dewan Rakyat, DAP’s National Publicity Secretary Tony Pua requests his colleagues in the coalition and the Opposition parties to give “full consideration” to the proposal made by Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin for bipartisan collaboration.

In a lengthy Facebook post, Damansara MP claimed PH had “nothing to lose” since the decision may break the political stalemate and force the Perikatan Nasional (PN) administration to implement political reforms.

He said that the people would undoubtedly vote out PN in the next general election, which Muhyiddin has promised will take place “ten months from now.”

He posted on his Facebook page to now consider the many advantages to the rakyat, such as ending the political instability and stalemate, blocking the return of the kleptocrats, and ensuring that a general election does not occur during the midst of a pandemic.

He said that in his opinion, if they cannot get a majority for the Opposition Leader, they must accept Muhyiddin’s offer. He has requested all the Opposition parties to meet with him and agreeing to attend the meeting is required at the very least, adding that they want to ensure that the people of the country will benefit, and that they don’t want to lose anything.
