Bersatu said last night that the 15th general election should only be held once the Covid-19 pandemic is under control and the situation has improved.

This was decided at the party’s Supreme Council meeting chaired by Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin who is also Bersatu president.

In a statement after the meeting, Bersatu information chief Wan Saiful Wan Jan said the party’s main agenda is to focus all efforts on addressing the Covid-19 pandemic and reviving the economy.

“Bersatu is committed to continuing our focus on efforts to improve the people’s well-being, especially in facing the Covid-19 pandemic and the ongoing floods.

“The actions of some parties who continue to play politics at a time when the people are going through a major ordeal are not right,” he said.

He added that Bersatu is committed to defending the political cooperation with parties in Perikatan Nasional (PN) to unite the ummah and the people.

He said this approach would be continued in a fair and equitable manner to ensure the well-being of people from all walks of life and backgrounds.

“In the context of PN, Bersatu will continue to strengthen political cooperation with other component parties, namely PAS, Parti Solidariti Tanah Airku (STAR) and Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP),” he said.

Wan Saiful said Bersatu also called on all parties to show sincerity and earnestness through strong organisational discipline to ensure the political cooperation forged through PN continues to be respected and preserved.

“Bersatu has decided to focus on consolidating the party’s strength through the practice of service and caring politics, as well as ensuring the entire machinery is on the ground to render assistance to those in need,” he said.
