Warisan, Bersatu should have talks over ‘Sabah move’ — Anwar


SHAH ALAM: PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim yesterday asked Parti Warisan Sabah (Warisan) and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) to hold talks over Bersatu’s decision to spread its wings to Sabah.

He said this was necessary to avoid any tension and misunderstanding between the two parties on the matter.

“As our (Pakatan Harapan) relationship with Warisan is good, I feel all decisions must be discussed and there must be an understanding because that’s our (Pakatan Harapan) way in the party.

“Although Bersatu has made a statement, it is better to have direct discussions so that there will be no tension between the parties,” he said after attending the Syarahan Darul Ehsan lecture organised by Universiti Selangor (Unisel) here.

Anwar was asked to comment on the statement by Prime Minister and Bersatu chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad last Friday that Bersatu would spread its wings to Sabah. — Bernama
