Isham should attend Umno supreme council meeting to share his views, says Zahid

PUTRAJAYA: Umno supreme council member Isham Jalil should attend its meetings so that he can explain his views to the party leadership in person, says Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

The Umno president said Isham had missed three meetings.

“We hope he will have the courage to attend the meeting and voice his views. The party would like to hear what he has to say,” he said on Wednesday (Dec 6).

The supreme council will meet on Wednesday night at Menara Dato' Onn in Kuala Lumpur.

Ahmad Zahid was asked to comment on Isham’s recent statement in which he cautioned the unity government not to treat the PAS victory in Kemaman lightly.

Any attempt to downplay the loss by the unity government would ultimately backfire and reveal a state of denial within its component parties, Isham had said.

Isham also said that excessive praise or support for DAP should stop.

Asked about the meeting between the Pakatan Harapan and Umno leadership on Monday (Dec 4), Ahmad Zahid declined to reveal what was discussed.

“If there is anything for us to reveal, we will release the details,” he said.

On Tuesday (Dec 5), Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said Umno has the support of the Malay community and justified this based on the votes obtained during the Kemaman by-election in Terengganu on Dec 2.
