Umno listens, but Supreme Council decides: Ismail Sabri on cooperation with PAS
Several party members have demanded to end negotiations with Islamist party
(The Vibes) – The fate of the Umno-PAS political cooperation lies in the hands of the Umno Supreme Council, not individual party leaders’ opinions, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
He said while Umno members and leaders are welcome to express their opinions, the Supreme Council has the final authority on party matters.
The Umno vice-president said this when asked to comment on several Umno division leaders demanding a permanent end to negotiations with PAS.
“It is up to the (Umno) Supreme Council. We will listen to the views of all members and leaders, that is just how Umno is.
“The Supreme Council will then determine a decision for the party,” he told reporters after officiating the Semarak Patriotik IPT 2022 event at the National Defence University Malaysia (UPNM) here today.
