Umno risks of losing grassroots to PN – Wan Agyl

A YOUTH leader has warned Umno that the party risks losing its grassroots support to Perikatan Nasional (PN) if it cannot explain the ‘paradigm shift’ in its choice of allies.

Umno Youth permanent chairman Wan Agyl Wan Hassan said many grassroots members were still loyal to former leaders who have either quit or were sacked by the party.

These people are not really loyal to the party but to certain individuals, hence, they would follow them (out of Umno).

“So, taking that as a benchmark along with the situation the party is facing with the DAP issue there will be a significant number of grassroots (switching) support to Perikatan Nasional,” he told FMT in Petaling Jaya.
