Sinar Harian Reported UMNO & BN MPs Including Those With Appointed Position Will Not Support Muhyiddin

Umno leaders are set to decide later this evening if the party would continue to back Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin or withdraw their support, following the embattled prime minister’s failed bid to declare an emergency.

Several of the party’s Supreme Council members said divergent views were given about what course of action to take next at this evening’s Barisan Nasional central leadership meeting, convened hastily as Muhyiddin’s position becomes more tenuous.

Umno supreme council member Datuk Zahidi Zainul Abidin claimed among the most popular option discussed at the hours long closed-door meeting was to force Muhyiddin to make more concessions in return for the party’s continued support.

“There were many views given,” the Padang Besar MP told reporters at the Putra World Trade Centre here.

“One of the strongest was that we renegotiate with Muhyiddin because there are so many posts given to Bersatu,” he added referring to Muhyiddin’s Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia.

Perdana Menteri, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin dijangka tidak akan mendapat sokongan ahli-ahli Parlimen daripada Barisan Nasional (BN), kata sumber dalaman parti itu hari ini.

“Ini termasuk dalam kalangan 26 Ahli Parlimen BN yang diberikan jawatan oleh Muhyiddin. Mereka juga tidak akan memberikan sokongan kepada Perdana Menteri.

“Jadi mesyuarat ahli-ahli Parlimen BN hari ini tidak akan memihak kepada Muhyiddin apabila ramai Ahli Parlimen BN bertegas dengan pendirian tidak mahu menyokong Muhyiddin,” kata sumber terbabit.

Hari ini berlangsung mesyuarat membabitkan Ahli-ahli Parlimen BN di Menara Dato Onn di sini susulan keputusan Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah menolak cadangan darurat oleh Perdana Menteri semalam.

Antara yang dilihat hadir termasuk bekas Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak; veteran UMNO, Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah dan Ahli Parlimen Pasir Salak, Datuk Seri Tajuddin Abdul Rahman.

Turut kelihatan, Timbalan Speaker Dewan Rakyat yang juga Ahli Parlimen Pengerang, Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said manakala Presiden UMNO, Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi dilaporkan hadir lebih awal.

Untuk rekod, BN mempunyai seramai 39 Ahli Parlimen.

Dakwaan menjadi lebih kukuh apabila Ahli Parlimen Sembrong, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein turut membayangkan perkara sama ketika ditemui media sejurus tiba di Bangunan Dato Onn di sini sebentar tadi.

Beliau berkata, mesyuarat BN hari ini akan memberi tumpuan kepada gesaan agar Muhyiddin meletak jawatan sebagai Perdana Menteri berikutan kegagalannya untuk mengisytiharkan darurat.

“Itulah yang sedang kita bincangkan, namun saya ingin mendengar kedudukan BN terlebih dahulu,” katanya.

“Umno must act as one (political) bloc. These were among the views that were supported by all parties (attendees of the emergency meeting),” Najib said.

When pressed further on whether there was a proposal for Umno to urge Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin to dissolve Parliament, Najib replied: “No decision.

“There were several views raised (during the meeting). However, the views do not amount to a decision (representing the stance of the party).

“What is important is the decision (by the Umno Supreme Council tonight),” he added.
