Umno MPs “free” to support Anwar – Zahid

(The New Sarawak) – UMNO will not stop its MPs from backing PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as prime minister as he tries to form the Federal Government.

Umno president Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said he was informed that many Umno and Barisan Nasional MPs have expressed their support for Anwar.

Zahid said that Umno and Barisan Nasional were not officially part of Perikatan Nasional, but supported it in Parliament.

“Perikatan Nasional was formed based on the support of individual MPs only,” he said.

Anwar had earlier today said he had enough support from MPs to topple the PN government and that he was seeking an audience with the King.

Anwar has offered to keep Najib out of jail, something Umno leaders say Muhyiddin Yassin is not offering

Anwar Ibrahim has promised to drop the corruption cases against Najib Tun Razak and Ahmad Zahid Hamidi if Umno supports him to take over as Prime Minister or PM9.

Zahid will not openly endorse Anwar as PM9 but he will not prevent any Umno or Barisan Nasional MP from supporting Anwar either.

The onus is now on Anwar to get his majority and present his case to His Majesty DYMM Yang di-Pertuan Agong and get sworn in as PM9.

DAP has taken the same stand. They will support Shafie Apdal as PM9, but if Anwar can get the majority and His Majesty the Agong consents to Anwar taking over, then DAP will support Anwar as well.
