AFTER its role in the Sheraton Move, Bersatu will likely die a slow death, whether it stays in Perikatan Nasional (PN) or returns to Pakatan Harapan (PH), said political analysts.
The crisis-ridden Malay party could have a slim chance of survival in PN because they are still in the federal government and are able to gain popular support.
Umno and PAS are in the Muafakat Nasional pact and have previously stated that their support for PN is only until the next general election.
Although there has been recent talk of Bersatu leaders and members returning to the Umno fold, their future there is also not assured, said analysts at a webinar by the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies.
