Zahid: Stop blaming Ismail Sabri over Umno’s poor performance in GE15

After Umno’s devastating performance in the 15th general election (GE15), party president Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi urged delegates to stop pointing fingers, especially toward Barisan Nasional poster boy Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

(MMO) – During his official address at the Umno annual general assembly, Zahid said it will be an uphill hast to move on from the defeat and restore the party back to its glory days.

“Can I also mention, comments such as ’the poster boy needs to be fully responsible because he is the front face of the party in the GE15’.

“If this is to be used as a polemic, we will not move forward. We will continue to find fault. So for that reason, let’s not deny that the party’s efforts, in facing the general election, have been made as best as possible,” he told the party delegates at Umno headquarters at World Trade Center Kuala Lumpur (WTCKL).

He also reiterated that Umno is ready to forgive the 10 lawmakers who supported Perikatan Nasional (PN) chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin to be the prime minister.

He also hopes that Umno will put an end to any potential treacherous movement, especially with the party election scheduled to be held within six months.
