Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) today said it would comply with the decree of Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah for the formation of a unity government to resolve the recent political turmoil.
GPS chairman Abang Johari Openg, who is also Sarawak premier, said that the appointment of the federal Cabinet, however, would be up to Anwar Ibrahim who was sworn in as the country's 10th prime minister today.
He said the king's decree was received after the audience with a delegation from GPS led by Fadilah Yusof at Istana Negara last night.
"His Majesty advised that a unity government be formed to resolve the political turmoil," he said at a press conference in Kuching today.
"GPS will comply with the king's decree, according to the authority given to him under the Federal Constitution."
Abang Johari also said that GPS accepted DAP's apology, tendered by its secretary-general Anthony Loke and chairman Lim Guan Eng earlier today.
"We accept it with an open heart," he added, urging DAP to continue respecting the GPS component parties.
When asked about ties between GPS and DAP in Sarawak, he said things were as usual.
"They are not with the government here, they are still the opposition," he said.
