Dr M: GTA willing to talk to PN but ‘unsure’ of cooperation

Dr M: GTA willing to talk to PN but ‘unsure’ of cooperation

Gerakan Tanah Air (GTA) is ready to hold discussions with Perikatan Nasional (PN) on cooperation to face the 15th general election (GE15) but does not know whether the talks will be fruitful, its chairperson Dr Mahathir Mohamad said.

Commenting on PN chairman Muhyiddin Yassin’s call for opposition parties to consider negotiating cooperation with the coalition, Mahathir said such discussions should involve all parties and NGOs in GTA.

“He (Muhyiddin) can come and discuss with us but we do not know what the outcome will be,” he told reporters after flagging off GTA’s Semangat Merdeka programme today.

Mahathir said Muhyiddin had met him recently but they did not talk about a political cooperation.

The Langkawi MP reiterated that GTA, which comprises Pejuang, Berjasa, Parti Bumiputera Perkasa Malaysia (Putra), Parti Perikatan India Muslim Nasional (Iman) and NGOs, would fight abuse of power and corruption, and champion Malay rights in a bid to form a clean government.

Mahathir said GTA would submit its application for registration with the Registrar of Societies (ROS) on Sept 6.

  1. Desperadoes will get together with other desperadoes while scheming to back stab the others when and if the opportunity arises.

    Notwithstanding that, a PN and GTA get-together will not help both coalitions because GE15 will be their swansong.
