Bersatu supreme council to meet Thursday (March 4) evening to decide on Umno letter

PUTRAJAYA: The Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) supreme council will meet on Thursday (March 4) to decide on Umno’s termination of cooperation with the party.

Bersatu secretary-general Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin (pic) said the party’s supreme council meeting will be held Thursday evening.

Hamzah said the party’s political bureau chaired by Bersatu president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin had convened on March 3 to discuss the letter sent by the Umno president dated Feb 26.

The letter from Umno stated its supreme council’s decision on cooperation with Bersatu and Perikatan Nasional.

“Bersatu's supreme council will look into this at our meeting this evening. The issue will also be discussed with component parties at the next Perikatan supreme council meeting, ” he said Thursday.

Other Perikatan members are PAS, Sabah STAR, Sabah Progressive Party and Gerakan.

Umno had sent a letter, signed by president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, stating that the party's supreme council had, in a meeting on Feb 19, decided not to cooperate with Bersatu in the next general election.

The letter, addressed to Muhyiddin as Bersatu president and Perikatan chairman, also stated that Umno will continue to give its support to the Perikatan government until Parliament is dissolved.
