Umno to hold special supreme council meeting tonight (Oct 29), say sources


PUTRAJAYA: Umno will convene a special supreme council meeting on Thursday night (Oct 29), just days after it announced continued support for the Perikatan Nasional government.

Sources confirmed that they were informed of the meeting which will be held at Menara Datuk Onn at 8pm.

Speculation is rife that among the agenda of Umno's meeting on Thursday night was to deliberate the party's choice for ministership should there be a Cabinet reshuffle in the wake of a recent truce between the party and Perikatan.

Umno has informed the Perikatan government that it wants the Deputy Prime Minister's post, and that pary leaders be made ministers in more important ministries such as the Finance Ministry.

Meanwhile, a source said Umno was doing a headcount on how many supreme council members would be able to attend the meeting.

"If not many can do so, meeting will have to be postponed," said the source.

The Umno supreme council meeting, which met on Monday (Oct 26), rejected the idea of supporting either Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim or rival political party DAP.

At the same time, its support for the Perikatan government remains, the party’s supreme council decided.
