KUALA LUMPUR (Nov 24): Perikatan Nasional (PN) is now willing to consider the proposal by Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah to form a unity Government at the federal level.

In a statement on Thursday (Nov 24), the coalition’s secretary general Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin said PN’s supreme council in a special meeting had discussed and agreed to consider the proposal to form a unity Government that involves deliberations with like-minded parties for the well-being of the people and the country’s stability.

The coalition, which won 73 seats in the Dewan Rakyat during the 15th general election (GE15), previously rejected the Palace’s proposal on Tuesday after its chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and Pakatan Harapan’s Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim were granted an audience with the King.
