Umno Chairman Ahmad Zahid said today that the severance of diplomatic relations between Umno and the Bumiputera Unity Party (Turkish Party) is a foregone conclusion, and the decision will be legalized at the Umno General Assembly today. He also reiterated that Umno will continue to campaign under the banner of the Barisan Nasional in the 15th general election, and at the same time refuse to cooperate with the Turkish League, Anwar and the Democratic Party.
Ahmad Zahid attended the Umno Congress held on the second day of the World Trade Center Plaza in Kuala Lumpur this morning. In his policy speech, he pointed out that Umno was dissolving the parliament in January this year based on the original agreement between the League of Nations and Umno. It was only in March that the national election was held to support the National League to form a government. However, due to the outbreak of the coronavirus, a state of emergency was finally ushered in.
Ahmad Zahid also said that UMNO believes that the League of Nations has received enough support from parliamentarians, and the government of the League of Nations may not hold a national election until 2023. He, therefore, said that Umno must “do something”. “
