Umno’s future is at stake if decisions are made without taking into consideration the sentiment and will of the majority, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin says.
The Umno deputy president posted the reminder on his Facebook page last night, in response to the resignation of Kedah Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir, after losing majority support in the assembly, following two weeks of political uncertainty in the state.
The tussle over the post began on January 20 when Kedah Umno liaison deputy chairman Datuk Seri Ahmad Bashah Md Hanipah led a press conference, comprising division and wings leaders, to declare their loss of confidence in Mukhriz’s leadership.Bashah will be sworn in as menteri besar at 10am today.
Muhyiddin said Mukhriz’s ouster yesterday also marked the end of an era where people could trust leaders to act in their interests.
