DAP Secretary General, Anthony Loke Siew Fook says DAP is willing to work with UMNO for the sake of forming the next Federal Government, as “anything is possible in politics”.
However, any collaboration, if at all, would only happen after the next General Election.
He said that Malaysian politics had undergone drastic changes since the 2018 General Election, particularly the absence of a single dominant party.
As such, collaborations between different parties for the sake of forming the government was now more likely.
In recent times, DAP and its Pakatan Harapan (PH) partners PKR and Amanah have cooperated with UMNO and its leaders on matters such as the much criticised Memorandum of Understanding between the Opposition coalition and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
“I will not rule out anything because what is important is that we (all parties) must be agenda based,” he said in an interview with FMT recently.
“As far as DAP is concerned, we want to strengthen PH, we want to push for reforms. Good governance is our main agenda and we also want to see more integrity in our government as well as a fight against corruption.”
