KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 9 — Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin accepted controversial Muslim coalition Ummah’s visit earlier today.
In a post by the coalition on its Facebook page, Ummah said it has submitted its demands to the Opposition party, showing its chairman Ismail Mina Ahmad and secretariat head Aminuddin Yahaya meeting Muhyiddin at the party’s office.
In a separate post on his own Facebook page, Aminuddin said the meeting went “very well”.
“PPBM has agreed to go through the demands but did not give any commitments to include it in their election manifesto. We will wait and see the manifesto later,” said Aminuddin.
A PPBM source who wished to remain anonymous confirmed to Malay Mail the meeting took place earlier, and revealed that no one else from PPBM was present.
The coalition had also submitted the document to PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang on January 23.
The document contains seven demands and was drafted after the Rise of the Ummah Convention which took place on January 13.
The convention came under heavy fire after chairman Ismail was quoted denying non-Malays’ involvements in the struggle against colonial invaders and the Communists.
