THE special Umno Supreme Council meeting tonight will discuss the offers and conditions presented by Pakatan Harapan (PH) and Perikatan Nasional (PN) in their bid for support to form the government.
Umno Youth chief Asyraf Wajdi Dusuki told reporters this just before attending the meeting at the party’s headquarters at World Trade Centre Kuala Lumpur.
He said the meeting will also discuss Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah’s suggestion for a unity government.
Asyraf, however, said the issue of calls for Ahmad Zahid Hamidi to resign as Barisan Nasional chairman and Umno president is not on the agenda.
He said the meeting will also discuss the issue of the 10 BN MPs who before this were said to have signed statutory declarations (SDs) in support of Muhyiddin Yassin as the prime minister candidate.
“We will definitely discuss this matter because one thing that we have to remember, based on the party constitution, is that before the BN candidates receive their letters of candidacy, there were four legal documents that needed to be signed, namely the offer letter, the SDs, the nomination agreement letter and the pledge document.
“Collectively, these four documents indicate that the seat contested by any BN MP is not a personal commitment nor is it tied to the component parties, but belongs to BN,” he said. – Bernama, November 23, 2022.
