PARTI Bangsa Malaysia’s (PBM) application to join Barisan Nasional (BN) will be discussed at its supreme council meeting in the middle of this month, BN deputy chairman Mohamad Hasan said.
Mohamad said Zuraida Kamaruddin, who is slated to take over the PBM presidency, had met him in his office last month to express PBM’s desire to join BN.
“Zuraida met me in my office last month, expressing PBM’s desire to join BN. I told her that BN (membership) is not decided by one person but has to be on consensus.
“It needs the agreement of all quarters and component parties in BN. If one party disagrees, it cannot be done. I have asked her to write a letter to the BN chairman for the matter to be considered at the upcoming meeting,” he said today.,
Mohamad, who is also Rantau assemblyman, was speaking to reporters after attending the Negri Sembilan assembly sitting in Seremban.
Media reports had said PBM was still waiting for a reply from BN regarding its application to join the coalition.
Mohamad, who is Umno deputy president, said apart from PBM, several other parties had also expressed their intention to join BN.
“From time to time, newly established parties expressed their desire to join BN but most were told to become friends of BN first. Most of these parties did not have state assemblymen and MPs, but PBM is different because it has elected representatives.
“The matter will be carefully considered from various aspects. We do not want other quarters to feel uneasy if we accept any party as a BN member. So, it will be deliberated on at the supreme council meeting,” he added. – Bernama, August 9, 2022.
