A statement issued by 225 MPs on Monday read, “We emphasize the opportunity created for the country and announce our readiness to cooperate with the president-elect in order to fulfill the promises made to the people during the electoral process and state that we are ready to make every effort to help realize (his) plans.”

He has promised to set the country back on the path of moderation.
