Umno man admitted supporting PKR president Anwar Ibrahim, says Shahidan

(FMT) – Umno supreme council member Shahidan Kassim today revealed that an Umno MP admitted to him that he had signed a letter in support of PKR president Anwar Ibrahim.

The Arau MP, speaking at a press conference broadcast live by Astro Awani today, claimed that the assemblyman signed his support on June 7 in front of Anwar and Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi as well as a dignitary.

He said he believed the actions of the MP were an offence, and that action against them was required.

He also noted that Zahid also violated commitments made at the party’s general assembly.

“The Umno General Assembly clearly stated that the party would support the Perikatan Nasional (PN) government until the next general election, and also said ‘No Anwar, No DAP’,” he said.
