Umno split reaches grassroots

Cracks in Umno appear to have reached the grassroots, with members in Umno divisions and branches nationwide split over whether to support the party president.

(NST) – Social media posts by grassroots Umno members on supporting or criticising Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin are heating up as both sides work on their narratives to gain support.

Sources in state Umno chapters said party president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahidi Hamidi no longer enjoyed unquestioned support from grassroots leaders.

“Division leaders in the same states have yet to agree on issuing a collective press statement to express their unanimous stand that they no longer support Muhyiddin’s leadership.
