Breaking News : 30 UMNO MPs Support Ismail Sabri As DPM & Wants Zahid Hamidi To Resign – Police Report Lodged Over Claim Of Misleading Agong

Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin has appointed Ismail Sabri Yaakob as his deputy and Hishammuddin Hussein as a senior minister, his office announced today.

The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) said in a statement that both appointments had been presented to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and were effective immediately.

It said Ismail would continue holding his defence portfolio while Hishammuddin had been made senior foreign affairs minister and would take over the security cluster previously headed by Ismail.

A member of Umno’s highest decision-making body has urged Ahmad Zahid Hamidi to step down as president, saying this is to ensure that the party does not suffer defeat in the 15th general election (GE15).

In a report by Utusan Malaysia, Umno Supreme Council man Zahidi Zainul Abidin cited Zahid’s multiple corruption charges, saying it would be difficult for the party to gain the support of the people in GE15.

“If he is a gentleman, with the spirit and a big heart, then he should resign,” Zahidi was quoted as saying.

“This would be better for Umno,” the deputy communications and multimedia minister added.

“In the present situation, many are confident in Umno which has become the people’s hope. But with the president embroiled in a court case, can Umno get the support of the people?”

Zahidi, the Padang Besar MP, said Zahid should follow the example of previous party leaders like Abdul Rahim Thamby Chik, Muhammad Muhd Taib and Khir Toyo who had stepped down from their positions after being charged in court.

The Umno Supreme Council will hold a meeting tonight to decide whether or not to withdraw from the Perikatan Nasional (PN) government.

Yesterday, Utusan Malaysia reported that Zahid had admitted to his party leaders that it was his voice in a recording of a phone conversation that exposed his cooperation with PKR leader Anwar Ibrahim.

It also said that Zahid had admitted to signing a statutory declaration in support of Anwar as prime minister.

When it was first reported by MalaysiaNow in April, Zahid had denied that it was him in the recording, saying that he would lodge a police report on the matter.

Anwar meanwhile described the audio recording as part of “sophisticated attempts” to defame him, and said he would let the police investigate.

Zahidi said he and a group of Umno MPs believed that the PN government would not collapse even if the Malay party withdraws its support.

“If we retract our support for PN, we will lose our positions and allocations as well as the states that are administered by Barisan Nasional,” he said in the report.

A police report has been made against Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi over the possibility that he had misled the Yang di-Pertuan Agong during a recent audience at Istana Negara.

According to Utusan Malaysia, the Umno member who lodged the report also mentioned Zahid’s admission that it had been his voice in a recording of a phone conversation that exposed his cooperation with PKR leader Anwar Ibrahim.

“A police report was made at about 11am,” the Umno member was quoted as saying.

“It was in relation to the Umno president’s admission about the viral audio clip as well as the disclosure of his conversation with Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah.”

The Malay daily said the report was made to ask the police to investigate Zahid’s statement in which he had denied any involvement in the audio clip.

“The statement caused confusion among Umno members such as myself, and caused me to feel tricked by him.

“This police report was also made to ask the police to investigate whether Zahid had lied to the Agong and committed wrongdoing through the involvement in a conspiracy to topple the Malaysian government which has disturbed the people’s peace.”

Both Zahid and Anwar had previously denied speaking to each other in the aftermath of the Umno general assembly, which was when the recording was made.

However, Anwar at a dialogue on April 10 asked what the issue would be if the recording was real, while stopping short of denying that it was his voice in the clip.

When it was first reported by MalaysiaNow in April, Zahid had denied that it was him in the recording, saying that he would lodge a police report on the matter.

Anwar meanwhile described the audio recording as part of “sophisticated attempts” to defame him, and said he would let the police investigate.
