Pakatan council must first approve ex-Umno MPs joining PPBM

(MMO) – The Pakatan Harapan (PH) presidential council meeting, which is held on a monthly basis, will be convened at an earlier date to discuss whether the coalition will accept the seven former Umno Parliamentarians into the party.

DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng said party chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad had agreed to hold the meeting at an earlier date to discuss the matter in spirit of the party.

“We feel that the matter has to be discussed in the PH presidential council meeting. I have raised the matter to Dr Mahathir and he had agreed to hold a meeting earlier than usual,” said Lim at a press conference, here, today.

Lim however was unable to confirm when the meeting will be held.

The last meeting was held on February 1 and is not expected to be called until the following month.
