PUTRAJAYA: Gagasan Sejahtera handed over a memorandum to Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) today to pledge its support against corruption in the country.

The coalition, the third political bloc in the country comprising Pas and Parti Ikatan Bangsa Malaysia (Ikatan), presented the memorandum to MACC chief commissioner Datuk Dzulkifli Ahmad at 12pm, before convening an hour long meeting.

Present were leaders of the both parties- Ikatan president Tan Sri Abdul Kadir Sheikh Fadzir and PAS deputy president Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man.

Dzulkifli lauded the coalition move to set an example for other political parties to follow suit.

"MACC will not be able to carry out its duties in fighting corruption alone without the support of the people. We want more people as well as political parties to come and pledge their support," he said.

"If our members stop offering and receiving bribes from now, I'm sure our country will definitely be free from corruption in the near future. Corruption should be country's number enemy."

Among the issues discussed with the coalition were short of MACC enforcement officers, budget issues and the commission's aspirations for the country in the next three years, he added.

Some 30 people comprising leaders and members from the coalition were present.
