‘We reject efforts to derail the government”

DEPUTY Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi says the new Umno leadership and Barisan Nasional will continue to support and strengthen the Unity Government.

Zahid, who is also Umno president, said based on the results of the party elections which ended yesterday, it was evident that every level of the Umno national leadership and the grassroots were in support of the unity government led by Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim.

“Even though we know there are efforts to disrupt the government, it was rejected by the Umno delegates,” he said after attending the unity government secretariat meeting here last night.

The meeting, which lasted for about two hours, was chaired by Anwar, who is also the Pakatan Harapan chairman, and attended by leaders of the parties in the unity government.

Zahid also expressed confidence that partners, including those from Sabah and Sarawak, will continue to support and strengthen the unity government.
