Annuar Musa: Umno’s political bureau might negotiate new deal with Bersatu

Umno and PAS officially registering Muafakat Nasional (MN) as a political coalition does not necessarily spell the end of its partnership with Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu).

(MMO) – Umno secretary-general Tan Sri Annuar Musa said he hoped its political bureau would negotiate a new deal with Bersatu and reiterated his belief in the Perikatan Nasional (PN) government.

In a tweet yesterday afternoon, Annuar said “Not true, do not simply assume,” in reaction to an article and headline by Malay Mail which implied Bersatu was out of the MN coalition.

Today, the Federal Territories minister again tweeted that an olive branch has been extended to Bersatu for a possible renegotiation of their terms.

“I had envisioned before this a desire from Umno’s political bureau to negotiate a new deal with PPBM that could strengthen the PN government.

“I am confident that the PN government can continue to defend the public better than PH (Pakatan Harapan). INSYAALLAH BIDUK LALU KIAMBANG BERTAUT….,” Annuar tweeted earlier today alluding to the Malay proverb which means those who have fought before can still reconcile in the future.
