Malaysia's Ismail Sabri Open To Coalition Talks If There's Risk Of Hung Parliament

ASIA

Malaysia's Caretaker Prime Minister Ismail Sabri said a coalition government would likely be formed should none of the major political blocs win an outright majority in next week's general election.

  • The 15th general election will be contested by six main alliances, including three major blocks Barisan Nasional (BN), Perikatan Nasional (PN) and Pakatan Harapan (PH), the newly formed Gerakan Tanah Air (GTA) led by former Prime Minister Mahathir, as well as two regional blocs Gabungan Rakyat Sarawak (GRS) and Gabungan Parti Sabah (GPS).
  • Ismail Sabri refused to comment on specific coalition configurations, noting that any such decisions will be taken by the whole party rather than a single individual like himself. He was answering a question about the possibility of Barisan Nasional cooperating with Party Keadilan Rakyat.
