PETALING JAYA: Umno has announced that it will hold an emergency supreme council meeting on Tuesday (Aug 3) to deliberate various pressing matters.
According to Umno secretary-general Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan, the emergency supreme council meeting will take place virtually at 4pm.
He said among the topics that will be brought up is the recent royal rebuke over the revocation of the Emergency Ordinances, the Emergency Proclamation and the postponement of the current special Parliament sitting.
"For sure, this emergency meeting is to discuss latest political issues, such as the Istana Negara statement and the Yang di-Pertuan Agong's letter, as well as the Emergency and the postponement of the Parliament session," he tweeted on Monday (Aug 2).
On July 29, Umno president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi called on the party's MPs to retract support towards Muhyiddin as Prime Minister, after the Perikatan Nasional government was given a royal rebuke over the revocation of the Emergency Ordinances.
Ahmad Zahid said all Umno MPs must execute the decision of the Umno Supreme Council working committee on July 7 to retract support for Muhyiddin as prime minister.
