UMNO Supreme Council members should call an emergency meeting to discuss ending ties with Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia and rejecting Prime Minister (PM) Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s leadership, urged Tengku Tan Sri Razaleigh Hamzah or also known as Ku Li (picture).

The party was supposed to hold its AGM last month, but was postponed due to a surge in Covid-19 cases.

It was the second time the assembly was postponed as it was initially slated to be held on Dec 6 and 7 last year for the party’s 2020 general assembly.

“The Supreme Council must hold an emergency meeting to decide for all its members to end cooperation with Bersatu following the wishes of 147 Umno divisions.

“It should also vote to reject Muhyiddin’s role as the PM and the Perikatan Nasional’s government leader,” he said.

He added that all MPs from Barisan Nasional’s (BN) component parties should do so before the Parliament convenes.

It was previously reported that 147 of the 191 Umno divisions have rejected cooperation with Bersatu.

There were also talks on Umno’s plans to progress alone in the political arena following quarters in the party that voiced their objection to alliances forged with other parties.

Last week, Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah said the Parliament may convene during emergency period.

Several parties have raised concerns that the emergency was called as a bid for Muhyiddin to remain in power as the Parliament was also not allowed to convene.

On Monday, the PM stressed that the declaration of emergency in the country was an appropriate move taken in response to a major health crisis and not due to political reasons.
