Gerakan announced Saturday its withdrawal from Barisan Nasional (BN), leaving only three parties in the coalition that once had 13 component parties.

The central committee said the decision was made after serious and comprehensive deliberation, reflection and consideration of the current political developments of the country post-GE14.

It also said that it leaves Barisan on good terms, adding that Gerakan will be an independent party in the Opposition bloc to offer a check-and-balance to the Pakatan Harapan government.
