PN attempts to woo MCA, MIC away from BN

Perikatan Nasional has extended its olive branch to welcome MCA and MIC into its fold if the two parties are not getting due respect from BN.

According to PN chairperson Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, the two parties should show that they still have dignity and leave BN to work with PN.

“I have seen what was (MCA president Datuk Seri) Wee Ka Siong said. It looks like the party has been sidelined and denied the chance to contest.

“Umno has done a lot of things that have sidelined MCA and MIC. So if the parties still had dignity, why still be with BN? They can contest solo and gauge the people’s support (towards the parties), or work with any other parties, including Gerakan, and PN, because we are ‘open’,” the Bersatu president tells reporters after attending a PN function in Batang Kali last night.

MCA had previously announced that it would sit out of the Kuala Kubu Baharu by-election, as it was not comfortable with statements made by DAP against the party.

As for the MIC, despite admitting it was sidelined, the party has instructed its machinery to hit the ground for Pakatan Harapan’s Pang Sock Tao of the DAP.

Pang is facing a four cornered fight for the semi urban, mixed constituency.

The by-election in Kuala Kubu Baharu is set to take place tomorrow.
