PETALING JAYA: A senior PPBM leader says they are unfazed by Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s letter to Muhyiddin Yassin, which said Umno will not work with the party for the next elections.
Speaking to FMT, Redzuan Yusof, a PPBM Supreme Council member, said the party’s leadership doubted that the contents of Zahid’s letter was reflective of what the whole of Umno wanted.
In the letter, Zahid had told PPBM president Muhyiddin of his party’s reluctance to work with PPBM in the next general election.
“We are cool, we are not unnerved. We were informed that during a recent Barisan Nasional meeting, the other component parties rejected Umno’s purported stance.
“I myself have learned that a few state leaders and cabinet members are slowly building continued support for Muhyiddin,” he said after a PPBM Supreme Council meeting today.
Redzuan said he had no intention of meddling in another party’s affairs but believes Umno’s “true stance” will be clearer after it holds its party elections.
He said that from his interactions with his friends in Umno, some are pushing for party polls before GE15 to find a new leader to take them into the elections.
“I am of the impression there are those in Umno who want a new leader who will restore the dignity, integrity, solidarity, and unity within the party.”
