Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman Ahmad Zahid Hamidi says the coalition will continue to defend the coalition government which reflects and embodies the "face" of Malaysia.
The deputy prime minister said he also hoped that the cooperation between BN and Pakatan Harapan (PH) could be strengthened at the grassroots level.
"It is to catalyse the spirit of unity, while administering the country by providing the best service for all Malaysians," he said in a Facebook post yesterday.
Zahid, who attended the 2023 DAP Congress in Putrajaya with BN secretary-general Zambry Abdul Kadir, Umno secretary-general Dr Asyraf Wajdi Dusuki and Umno Supreme Council member Mohd Sharkar Shamsudin, said they were confident of the party's determination to maintain unity in the country.
"I saw DAP's determination to maintain the country’s unity from two speeches, delivered by Anthony Loke (DAP secretary-general) and Lim Guan Eng (DAP national chairman).
"It was also translated by the delegates I met in this assembly hall, who wanted political stability to catalyse more success for Malaysia," he said.
