Only the leadership can decide, says PM

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept8 – Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said each and every negotiation involving Umno is valid only when sanctioned by its top leadership.

The vice-president said any individual or impartial move cannot be taken as representing the party.

“The leadership will decide on official negotiation, we don’t condone individual move,” he said when commenting a leader allegation that some Umno leaders has had a secret meeting with PAS on cooperation for a one-to-one contest with PH in the next general election.

Mursyidul Am PAS Hashim Jasin was quoted as saying they wanted Umno to realize that PH is the real enemy in GE15.

On PAS proposal to dicuss the status of 27 critical seats, Ismail said it should be brought to the Supreme Council.
