KUALA LUMPUR, September 10 – The Chairman of the Barisan Nasional (BN), Datuk Seri Dr. Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, has stated that the coalition will continue to defend the Unity Government, reflecting the face of Malaysia. The Deputy Prime Minister mentioned that he also hopes that the newly formed relationship between BN and Pakatan Harapan (PH) can be strengthened to grassroots levels. “This is to foster a spirit of unity and lead the country by providing the best service for all Malaysians,” he said in a Facebook post on Sunday.
Ahmad Zahid, who attended the 2023 DAP Conference in Putrajaya with BN Secretary-General Datuk Seri Dr. Zambry Abdul Kadir, UMNO Secretary-General Datuk Dr. Asyraf Wajdi Dusuki, and UMNO Supreme Council Member Datuk Seri Mohd Sharkar Shamsudin, stated that he believes the party is committed to maintaining the unity of the country. I see DAP’s sincerity in maintaining the unity of this country from two speeches by Anthony Loke (DAP Secretary-General) and Lim Guan Eng (DAP National Chairman). This is also reflected by the delegates I met after I set foot in this assembly hall, who want political stability to drive more success for Malaysia,” he said.
