SEREMBAN: The special Umno supreme council meeting was held in a cordial manner and all 54 members who attended agreed to withdraw support for Perikatan Nasional, says Umno deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan (pic).


There were no disagreements or voices raised and two members were absent, he said.

“The decision was unanimous… no one disagreed or objected (to withdraw support for Perikatan Nasional).

“As far as I am concerned, we were all on the same page and spoke the same language,” he said when contacted.

Among the absentees was Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Seri Reezal Merican Naina Merican who is with the Malaysian contingent at the Tokyo Olympic Games.

Mohamad said no one was told that they must stop supporting Perikatan and Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

“We agreed that all members, including ministers and those holding positions, must toe the party’s line and what more with the recent developments.


“Now it is left to their conscience.

“We also agreed that our focus now should be the 15th general election,” he said.

Asked what would be the party’s next move, Mohamad said that this would depend on the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

Asked if any member had raised concerns over the party’s decision, he said there were questions on what Umno would do next.

“Like I said, we decided that we shall leave this to the King’s wisdom,” he added.-The Star
