Not likely to happen, says Zambry on PPBM's wish to lead Pakatan


PANGKOR ISLAND: Perak Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir said it is unlikely that Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia's (PPBM) will be able to head Pakatan Harapan, looking at the state the coalition is currently in.

"I would consider the statement by PPBM president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin for the party to lead the opposition pact...(that it) is not going to become a reality.

"PPBM, in my view, is attempting to take control of the topsy-turvy situation the coalition is currently in. The party thinks it can unite the DAP and Parti Amanah Negara (PAN)," he said, after attending a briefing by Manjung Public Works Department in Pangkor island today.

Zambry said the people should be wise enough to understand what was going on as similar statement had being made by DAP and PAN before.

"This happened because PPBM, DAP and PAN each think they are better and more capable than the other to lead and head the coalition," he added.

Zambry was commenting on Muhyiddin's statement in a speech during a rally in Padang Rengas, Perak yesterday where he suggested that PPBM, as a Malay-based political party, should be allowed to take charge of Pakatan's struggle to boost the coalition's appeal among the people.

Also present at the event was PPBM chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
