No way for Bersatu to collaborate with us – Amirudin

Selangor Pakatan Harapan chairman Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari dismissed the notion that his coalition would team up with Bersatu for the next general election due to the role played by the party in the Sheraton Move that saw the collapse of the Pakatan Harapan government in February 2020.

In addition to that, he said the grassroot sentiments must be taken into account if there is going to be a collaboration.

“Bersatu made us suffer a lot after the 14th general election. Their decision (to leave the government) collapsed our whole plan of reforms for the country and we now have to start from scratch.

“(The decision for PH to work with Bersatu) is not just between (PH chairman) Anwar Ibrahim and Azmin Ali and Muhyiddin. We have to consider voters’ feelings and sentiments after being victimised in the Sheraton Move,” said the Selangor menteri besar after an event at Dewan Raja Muda Musa here today.

He said this in response to a suggestion by former law minister Zaid Ibrahim who suggested that PH forge an alliance with Bersatu since it is now working with Umno. He made the suggestion on X.

Amirudin admitted that Zaid’s proposal was feasible but PH had its own strategy.

“We hope that with the momentum we’ve created as the state government in the last six months, we will be able to regain some seats in the next state election,” he said, FMT reported.
