According to Umno vice-president Ismail Sabri Yaakob, the majority of Umno’s supreme council disagreed with party president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s instruction to withdraw support for Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin as prime minister at this time.
According to Berita Harian, Datuk Seri Ismail said that during a recent meeting, supreme council members, including himself, spoke out against the decision to withdraw the party’s support despite the current epidemic since it was not a reasonable approach.
Mr. Ismail, Mr. Ismail, who is also the Deputy Prime Minister, said now was not the time for politics and that efforts should instead be directed toward aiding those suffering from the current Covid-19 outbreak.
Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid, who was ill, was the sole member of the supreme council who did not attend the meeting on Wednesday night (July 7).
“All those present expressed they disagreed with withdrawing support for the Prime Minister during the meeting.
Instead, we believe that today’s focus is to address the problems faced by the rakyat (people) who are suffering from hardships and have had their lives significantly impacted by the current pandemic.
Umno, the largest party in the ruling Perikatan Nasional alliance, declared that it had decided to withdraw its support for Mr. Muhyiddin and demanded his resignation.
Mr. Muhyiddin, Zahid claimed, had failed to meet the conditions laid down by Umno when it backed him for Prime Minister in March last year, namely, to lead the country’s economic recovery and adequately deal with the Covid-19 pandemic.
