PUTRAJAYA: Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has denied any possibility of Pakatan Harapan establishing political ties with Umno.

Dr Mahathir said this was because Umno’s status as a registered political party remained unclear.

“Umno cannot be in PH (Pakatan Harapan),” he said during a press conference at the Perdana Leadership Foundation here today.

Asked whether Umno could be deregistered, the prime minister said he would leave the matter for the courts to decide.

“In fact, it is up to the Registrar of Societies to decide Umno’s status,” he said.

Dr Mahathir, however, did not elaborate on the reasons why Umno could face deregistration.
