UMNO denies reports on cooperation with Bersatu, PN

KUALA LUMPUR (BERNAMA) – UMNO has denied reports that the party will not work with Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) and the coalition of the Perikatan Nasional (PN) in the 15th General Election (GE15), which went viral on social media.

Its Strategic Communications Department said that any statement on UMNO Supreme Council Working Committee (MKT)’s decision was invalid, unless it came from an official statement issued by the party or its leadership.

“UMNO headquarters takes seriously the reports related to the decision of the MKT meeting on Saturday.

“Any report, speculation and other media statements should not be referred to as the party’s official stance or statement,” it said in a statement on Sunday.

Recently, several media reported that UMNO leaders decided not to cooperate with Bersatu and PN in GE15.

Media reports were quoting a party source who was said to have attended the UMNO leadership meeting in Janda Baik, Pahang on Friday.
