KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 1 — Umno president Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi must provide guidance on whether the party should keep up alliances that were costing rather than benefiting it, said Datuk Mohamad Hasan.
The Umno deputy president said this was obvious from the outcome of the 16th state election when the Malay nationalist party was forced to concede the chief minister’s position to Bersatu despite winning the most seats of any single party.
He also alleged that promises made regarding the division of Sabah portfolios were also almost broken.
“As such, the time has come for the Umno president to offer guidance and a clear direction to the party and its members on whether we should continue our cooperation with our political rivals,” he said in a statement today.
“A political consensus must be upheld to have results, to assuage concerns, dissatisfaction and anger among members over how Umno was treated in the Sabah state election.”
