Gerakan has concluded its emergency meeting, but no announcement has been made.

A spokesperson told reporters that the meeting had been adjourned as Gerakan president Dominic Lau has an urgent matter to attend to.

Prior to the meeting, Lau told reporters that Gerakan has no intention of joining BN or any coalition just yet.

He also brushed off speculations that ex-PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali will be joining the party.

Lau said he had yet to receive a membership application form from Azmin.

“Give the (application) form to me if you have it,” he said when reporters posed the question to him at the Gerakan headquarters today.

Asked if Gerakan would accept Azmin as its member, he said the party would welcome whoever agrees with the party’s ideology as well as follows and respects the party’s constitution.

“We will accept as long as they put the people first. If they uphold the party ideology, anyone, regardless either from the new or old government, opposition or NGOs as long as you are fighting for the people’s rights, we will support (them).


“Our priority is the rakyat must come first, this is our stance. The people want to see stability. We have to make sure our country is stable and economically sound,” he said.

Lau also said it was not important who would be the next prime minister following Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s resignation today.

“As what we have said before, we should put politics aside first. Who will become the (next) prime minister is not important. What is more important is to focus on the country’s economy and the Covid-19 outbreak. Everybody must come together on these issues.”

Lau said currently efforts should be made to stabilise the situation and get everyone on board to look after the country.
