Nazri Aziz says BN is as good as gone

PETALING JAYA - It is time for Barisan Nasional to dissolve, now that its Sarawak component parties have exited the coalition, said Datuk Seri Nazri Abdul Aziz.

The Padang Rengas MP told The Sun Daily that Barisan was "as good as gone" and said bold changes were needed.

"It might be a good thing to dissolve BN now and have Umno go it alone in peninsular Malaysia," Nazri said.

He said there is no coming back for Barisan, especially after MCA, MIC and Gerakan were defeated on May 9.


"BN is no longer strong like it used to be, and in times like this, we must bravely make changes or take drastic steps, similar to what the late former premier Tun Abdul Razak Hussein did after the 1969 general election," Nazri said.

He said that when the Alliance Party lost the popular vote, Abdul Razak was spurred into action and formed Barisan by joining forces with Gerakan and the People's Progressive Party.

On Tuesday (June 12), Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB), Sarawak United People's Party (SUPP), Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) and the Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP) announced that they were pulling out from the former ruling coalition to form a new state-based pact.
