UPDATE, July 17 - Former deputy prime minister Muhyiddin Yassin will lead efforts to build a consensus among all opposition parties for a new challenge to the Barisan Nasional.
He said Saturday that the formation of a new political movement, announced by Dr Mahathir Mohamad on Thursday, could only be effective if it was agreed in consensus by other opposition parties.
“For that, I will resume talks with other relevant quarters,” he said in a press statement. (More here).
A new political party to rival Umno will be formed, according to Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. He would join but might not lead.
