Kuala Lumpur: UMNO reiterated its stance to remain with the National Consensus and refused to join the National Alliance (PN). UMNO vice-president Datuk Seri Khaled Nordin said the party leader Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi was sighted PN does not have the power to defend the interests of the Malays and Islam.
That role has been led by the National Consensus. National Alliance also will not be able to attract non-Malay support for the party is seen as a political warning Malay-centric and not more than that.
“Representatives of non-Malays in the National Alliance as exciters so that PN only looked radiant with two or three of the non-Malays,” he said when opening the Umno Pasir Gudang today.
UMNO had previously said it would not join the coalition as one of the component parties.
In fact, the UMNO Supreme Council and the BN Supreme Council have made a clear decision that they only support the PN government until the 15th General Election (GE15).
Khaled further explained that the establishment of PN on an ‘ad hoc’ basis also does not reflect that it has a clear mission for this country.
