Gerakan has agreed to join the Perikatan Nasional (PN) coalition led by Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin.

Its president Dominic Lau said the decision was made at a central party leadership meeting in May.

“The matter was brought up at the meeting and it was unanimously agreed that we should be with PN.

“In fact, we already expressed our willingness (to join PN) to the prime minister,” he said after opening the party’s Negeri Sembilan state delegates conference in Seremban yesterday.

He said the party was waiting for a suitable time to discuss the matter with the coalition.

He added that Gerakan was now preparing its members for the 15th general election.

In the 14th general election, Gerakan performed badly, losing all 11 Parliament and 31 state seats it contested.

On June 23, 2018, the party announced that it was quitting Barisan Nasional to become an independent opposition party.
