Umno supreme council to meet virtually

PETALING JAYA: Umno will hold a virtual special supreme council meeting today to look into its stance and other actions following the current political situation, says its president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

“Umno is concerned with what is currently happening, especially the crisis between Istana Negara and the government, violations on the sovereignty of the royal institution, the supremacy of the Federal Constitution and ruining of the practice of parliamentary democracy,” said the Umno president in a brief statement.

According to Umno secretary-general Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan, the emergency supreme council meeting is set to deliberate on various topics, including the recent royal rebuke over the revocation of the Emergency Ordinances, the Emergency Proclamation and the postponement of the current special Parliament meeting.

“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 yesterday.

On July 29, the Umno president called on the party’s MPs to retract support for Muhyiddin as Prime Minister after the Perikatan Nasional government was given a royal rebuke over the revocation of the Emergency Ordinances.
