PETALING JAYA (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said the ruling Barisan Nasional coalition remained strong although some of its leaders had chosen to work with the Opposition.

Without naming any individuals, Mr Najib said they were the ones who might have forgotten the party's principles and struggles.

"But yesterday (Saturday), I could see that the unity and loyalty among the Barisan parliamentarians remain strong," he said, referring to a pre-council meeting held at Seri Perdana ahead of the Dewan Rakyat sitting.

"God willing, we will continue to carry out our responsibilities trusted by the people," he wrote in his official Facebook account on Sunday (March 6).

He also published a photo of him sharing a light moment with several Barisan leaders taken during the meeting.

 
 

On Friday (March 4), suspended Umno deputy president Tan Sri Muhyddin Yassin and Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir along with Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and 45 other politicians as well as activists signed a declaration to 'Save Malaysia'.

The demands of the declaration included working towards to the removal of Mr Najib and all those who supported him.
