BERSATU prefers to work with PAS over Umno as the Islamist party gives the Perikatan Nasional (PN) pact fewer problems, observers said as Umno looks set to end its relationship with the two parties.

They told The Malaysian Insight that the signs are clear of a break-up after Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi told the press that the Malay nationalist party will contest all seats in the next general election.

  • The unity spirit of Malays are open for all to see and the main agenda is seat allocations. dumno made the call is a personal one by najis and zahid as din didn't let them go that easy. members of all political parties are suckers if the direction is set by a few people with their own agenda without giving much says to others.
