PETALING JAYA: Perikatan Nasional has made an about-turn and says its Supreme Council has agreed to consider the King’s proposal on the formation of a unity government.

PN secretary-general Hamzah Zainudin said this was for the sake of national stability and the people’s welfare.

He said this followed a PN Supreme Council meeting today on the formation of a unity federal government.

On Tuesday, PN chairman Muhyiddin Yassin said the King had asked PN and Pakatan Harapan to work together in forming the government.

However, he said PN turned this down as the coalition was firm about not cooperating with PH.

Previously, Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) and Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) stated their support for Muhyiddin to become the prime minister.

However, GPS later said it will leave it to the King to decide on who should become the prime minister. GRS made a similar statement today.

PN has 73 parliamentary seats, while PH has 82 and Barisan Nasional 30.
