Bersatu Spokesman Warns Support For PM Ismail Sabri Is Conditional


Bersatu information chief Wan Saiful warned Prime Minister Ismail Sabri of UMNO that support provided by Bersatu is conditional, Free Malaysia Today reports.

  • Wan Saiful says that Ismail Sabri did not become Premier thanks to UMNO, who never nominated him for the role. He suggests UMNO wanted its President Zahid to replace Bersatu's Muhyiddin Yassin as Prime Minister, but Bersatu threw its weight behind Ismail Sabri.
  • Wan Saiful spoke at a party meeting ahead of the Johor state election slated for next month. Although UMNO and Bersatu are partners in the federal coalition, the former refused to cooperate at the upcoming poll.
