According to UMNO’s former Secretary General Tan Sri Annuar Musa, there we’re individuals who started a negotiation between UMNO and PKR until they were finally given a formal support to change the government.
The Ketereh MP said he knew about this matter because at that time he was the Barisan Nasional (BN) secretary general who currently was handling the party’s management which was in preparation for the Sabah State Election.
During this period, he suspected that there was something wrong as the original agreement based on the party’s decision began to marginalized.
“So this is where the change of direction takes place. But at that time it was an important moment because on 18th August we had accepted Bersatu’s readiness to join the Muafakat national and on September 19, a month later, the matter was sealed in the minutes of the National Consensus committee meeting.” He said during his interview with Agenda Awani.
