Malaysia’s PM Anwar says he will invite Perikatan Nasional to join his unity govt

SUNGAI LONG, SELANGOR – Malaysia’s new Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim said on Thursday that he will invite the Perikatan Nasional (PN) coalition – a bitter rival to his Pakatan Harapan (PH) pact in the general election – to join the unity government that he leads.

Speaking at his first news conference as premier, Datuk Seri Anwar said the rights of the Malay majority and Malaysia’s official religion of Islam will be protected, but he will also defend the rights of all ethnic groups and Malaysian territories.

PN leader Muhyiddin Yassin on Thursday asked Mr Anwar to prove his parliamentary majority.

Tan Sri Muhyiddin had on Tuesday rejected to join the unity government offered by the Malaysian King.

Mr Muhyiddin said on Thursday that his PN coalition had 115 seats on Tuesday, above the minimum 112 seats needed to control the 222-strong Parliament, when the King asked for PH and PN to send in their list of lawmakers.
