Viral statement is fake, says Umno headquarters

THE viral statement claiming that Umno has adopted a more open approach and is willing to lessen its exclusive focus on Malay agendas is false.

The Umno headquarters confirmed this on Sunday (May 12), referring to a statement dated the same day allegedly issued by its president, Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

The false statement, which used Umno’s official letterhead, also mentioned that Malaysia should emulate Singapore, which has shown rapid progress by no longer overly focusing on the interests of a particular race. – Bernama
