KUALA LUMPUR: Umno Youth will not retract its call for an apology from DAP over its previous allegations against the party, says Dr Muhamad Akmal Saleh.

This is despite Umno president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi saying there is no need for DAP to apologise to Umno as the matter has been resolved during negotiations to form the unity government and the matter should not be raised again.

"We will not retract what we had said here earlier today.

"It doesn't matter if people say we are rude as long as we have represented the voices of the grassroots," he said when wrapping up his speech at the Umno Youth annual general meeting on Thursday (June 8).

"Don't feel apologetic when you leave this hall as we have spoken for the grassroots," said the Umno Youth chief.

Earlier in the day, during his opening speech at the Umno Youth meeting, Dr Akmal said that DAP must retract and apologise for the allegations it had made against the party previously.

He said this must be done before the coming state elections in order to pacify Umno supporters.

He also clarified why Umno Youth did not invite other parties such as DAP to the opening of their meeting.

He said the absence allowed delegates to speak freely on issues without mincing their words.
