Umno supreme council makes the major decisions, Ku Li's opinion his own, says Reezal

KUALA LUMPUR: Tan Sri Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah's call for Umno Cabinet members to step down from their posts is merely his personal viewpoint, says Umno supreme council member Datuk Seri Reezal Naina Merican.

The Youth and Sports Minister, however, said he would relinquish his post if that was the party's official decision.

"His (Razaleigh's) opinion is a personal view.

"In our party, we make decisions based on consensus by the supreme council.

"I am a party man. I will abide with the party's decision, whatever it is," said Reezal to reporters on the sidelines of the Umno general assembly on Sunday (March 28).

Earlier, Razaleigh said all Umno ministers, deputy ministers and those who had been appointed heads of GLCs must resign from their posts immediately following the party's decision to cut ties with Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia.

The Umno veteran said it was only right for them to do so in response to the decision made by the Umno supreme council.

Reezal said the supreme council had already decided that Barisan Nasional MPs would remain in the current government until Parliament is dissolved.

In his presidential address, Umno president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said Umno would no longer cooperate with Bersatu when the 15th General Election is called.

Zahid said Umno would contest under the Barisan banner in GE15.
