KUALA LUMPUR — March 13, 2018: Former prime minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad is willing to contest under the ticket of any of the political parties within Pakatan Harapan in the 14th general elections (GE14 ) if his party Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia is dissolved.
The Pribumi Bersatu chairman said this was the option being considered in view of the dilemma faced by his party following a recent decision by the Registrar of Societies.
“I’m open, I can stand for DAP even, maybe (as) president of DAP,” he said sarcastically at a press conference at Parliament today after a meeting of Pakatan’s presidential council.
Asked if the crisis faced by Pribumi Bersatu was an obstacle to the opposition pack in GE14, Mahathir said: “Of course, if they (RoS) don’t approve it would be difficult but we will campaign as Pakatan Harapan.”
Recently, the RoS issued a notice to Pribumi Bersatu which required the party to provide certain information and documents to it by March 29 or face de-registration. — Bernama
